Today’s post is going to be very short. I had a root canal Monday afternoon and my mouth hurts too much to think.

I want to stay with Mr. Shontz at Holy Terror for a couple more weeks. Today I want you to turn your attention to his essay Horror and Heresy: Know the Difference.

What do you all think about his take on this? After all, we are creating fiction. Do we expect our readers to take our worlds and characters as representing reality?

I want to continue in this vein next week as well. I’ll share some of my thoughts and use specific books to illustrate.

Again, I apologize for not writing much today. But I hope Mr. Shontz’s essay will trigger some deep thought and great exchange of ideas.
