Re: Fiction



As a fictional writer there are techniques one uses to tell a story.  
Someone used the phrase, a willing suspension of disbelief.  That's 
one.  

Dinosaurs are fantastic.  People are entralled by them.  You don't 
see as many people go nuts over giant sloths(apologies to those who 
study ancient mammals).

If you try to write a story about an extinct creature, you will 
understand you have to "invent" a lot of that animals behavior.  
Also, the people that BUY stories don't give a crap about facts.  
They want to make money and are interested in a story line or plot.

Story tellers do just that.  They tell stories.  You can interpret 
that just as it's written.
