  1. Probably fiction on the whole. I do enjoy reading life stories, but it is a different kind a enjoyment – my brain seems to view it more as an educational kind of reading. But when I read fiction, my brain does not try to absorb and retain – it’s just a transitory enjoyment. I often read fiction….and then forget. Whereas when I read a biography, I seem to remember for a very long time.

    1. Oh….and movies – different altogether. So many movies not contain silly fantasy, I actually prefer a real life story in a movie – but something inspiring and uplifting. I have so very little free time to sit and watch a movie – so I want it to make me feel better, not worse!

      1. Is that the 250 word one? No, I haven’t. Have you? I only one point separated me from the final of the 100 word comp, and then I had to pull out of the flash fiction (for other reasons) after placing 6th in the heat. So I’m a bit deflated right now.


  2. I like both. Depends on what mood I’m in. Sometimes, curling up with a good fiction is one of the hardest things to beat. Sometimes, watching a good documentary or reading a well written book about someone’s life is impossible to beat. It’s one of those things that you just play by ear based on what you’re feeling. Not all fiction is good, and not all real-life is interesting.
