I woke up this morning thinking about the “suspension of disbelief.”
Odd, I know.
However, I think having that ability is what allows people to enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction. And stories have to be carefully set up and well crafted in order for readers to suspend disbelief.
Do you agree?
Origin of the term “Suspension of Disbelief” was coined by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1817. It means the temporary acceptance as believable of events or characters that would ordinarily be seen as incredible. This is usually to allow an audience to appreciate works of literature or drama that are exploring unusual ideas.
