things i don’t own enough of
• make up
• other useless things that will get me nowhere in life but I want them
Has Joss told you anything about the arc of the movie?
Chris Evans, the king of not knowing who the villains in his movies are.
I bet Sebastian Stan walked onto the set of Winter Soldier and he was like “what are you doing here? Bucky’s the Winter Soldier? You’re shitting me? They don’t tell me anything.”
I love this, because the woman doesn’t even step on the second chair.
During the act of reading engaging fiction, we can lose all sense of time. By the final chapter of the right book, we feel changed in our own lives, even if what we’ve read is entirely made up.
Research says that’s because while you’re engaged in fiction—unlike nonfiction—you’re given a safe arena to experience emotions without the need for self-protection. Since the events you’re reading about do not follow you into your own life, you can feel strong emotions freely.
The key metric the researchers used is “emotionally transported,” or how deeply connected we are to the story. Previous research has shown that when we read stories about people experiencing specific emotions or events it triggers activity in our brains as if we were right there in the thick of the action."
Also see how storytelling makes us human.
I often pick books about things I wish i could express/experience.
For example, reading “The Fault In Out Stars” when I was stressed about other things let me cry and be sad and that made the rest of the things I was stressed about better. Does that make sense?
