Sara and Alice

"Is this the real life? Or is it just fantasy?"
Question: What do you make of the fantastical and wondrous occurrences in fictional novels? Are they just creative nonsense, or are they something more?

I have asked this particular questions--in different words--in my other post The Law of Attraction. I'm mentioning it again because my paper is centered around this question.

I'm still in the process of editing and adding to my paper, so it will be another day to put all my thoughts down on this draft.

As you follow along, if you're confused, it might be a good idea to go back to my Feedback and Publication or Miracle.


  1. I think you pose some good questions at the beginning of your post, but I think in order to get the good feedback from an enthusiast that you're looking for, you might need to make your questions a tad more specific. Try thinking about the specific elements you're looking at for analysis and ask questions based on those elements.

  2. Good start! I think your thesis about how logic should sometimes be set aside to gain greater truths is really interesting. Maybe you could pose a question and ask if greater truths can be gained from setting aside normal, rational thinking, since that relates more to your thesis :)

  4. Just a couple ideas! I actually really wanted to find more sources for you!! You’re topic sounds interesting, I’m excited to see how you bring everything together by focusing on your texts, yet still making your paper applicable and relatable even to people who have not read your novel.
