It's some where between C and D. I can visualize it, but it's not clear. If I obsess about the story, I can get A quality in my dreams.

Jurassic Park velociraptors are my sworn enemy in the book and dreamland.

My imagination only gets like that when it comes to writing a story.



I write stories as well, so I think this is a byproduct of writing so much that I can both imagine everything and destroy the image at the same time.

Thanks a bunches.


So, tell me what is your imagination like when you read a fiction book?


A. I can see the characters and scenery clearly as if I was right there.

B. I make up my own characters to fit the scenes in the book.

C. I watch everything happen as if I was watching a movie.

D. I can't visualize when I read/I lack the proper imagination.

E. Other(explain in your comment).

My Turn:

I select D.


Enjoy!!!!


A so much so that if I get distracted by a noise IRL I sometimes look up expecting to see the scene from the book.

I have a extremely vivid imagination when it comes to reading. Not only do I see everything in Ultra HD but I also see what the characters are seeing and what's being described, I smell what they smell and hear what they do. Not literally but close enough. It's like a giant movie theater in my mind which is awesome but it sucks too because you'd think with all the literature I've read I would be a much better writer but I can never make myself notice the actual words I'm reading. I can only see the scenes playing out. I stop myself all the time while reading and realize I haven't seen a single word I just read and I was trying to pay attention to the language used, how the words are set up, grammar, punctuation, etc. but no matter how many times I try to see the words the movie starts playing again. This only works on a good book or a really good book. Nothing ruins that big movie screen like a poorly written book.


No 3-D?

For me, when I read I cast my own characters as far as looks with the author's description of their wardrobe and mannerisms. The scenery is usually a place that I have been substituted for the description of the author's. Once the cast and scenery is set, I watch as the story becomes alive. I'm there with them. Beside them. Watching. I feel their pain. Their joy. Their doubts. I visualize in three dimensional. If the story is good, I read until I reach the end or I am exhausted and have to shut my eyes. Which can be a drag if the next day is work. Sometimes, I don't sleep and just get ready for work. If I don't like the ending, I change it to what I think it should have ended.
