Good evening beautiful writers! I have a question I've been wondering but I figured I'll just ask my writer friends! Let's say someone writes a story about a man's struggles to finish his story which is the main story. For example, the real world would be all in narrative while the story would focus on the man's story. Do you personally think readers could ever feel anything for characters in a fictitious book? The books we read are all made up yet we feel for the characters. Isn't it quite the same? Tell me your thoughts please!
