What I’ve Always Suspected

Gardner Dozois sent the link to this article to an on-line group to which I belong.  It’s about how hearing a story affects our brains, and it is so cool.  So when a child asks, “Tell me a story”, you are doing more than just entertaining them.  It’s actually creating experience, and that is wonderful.  This is why I’m so much on my hobby horse about our books, games and movies actually telling a complete story and taking us on a journey.  Aiming for edgy or sophisticated is probably not going to bring the readership/viewership a creator wants.  There is nothing wrong with simple stories, well told.
