Does anyone know how can an author go about suspending disbelief when he/she writes fiction? A person can write countless stories and his/her readers may find that the story makes no sense. A story is fiction, right? If Santa Clause is not real, then how can an author convince them that he is real, even though the audience knows that he is fiction? On the other hand, how can we say that Satan can land on Earth in fiction, even though he cannot do so in reality? Can we write a story about a flying refrigerator that gives food to the poor and finding local grocery stores to replenish itself when it runs out of food and still have the audience suspending his or her disbelief? Would that be the point of fiction? I’m just curious; anyone have any thoughts about this?
