Truth in stories


(Attempt number two -thunderstorm knocked out the power for a few seconds ...so back to the nightly posting)

I like stories, almost all stories...except the perfect ones where nothing ever goes wrong ... dreams -though not my dreams, even those have some sort of problem to deal with...

The thing is I've read literally hundreds (if not thousands) of stories and it seems that the ones that become truly timeless are those that most mimic reality ....

Romeo and Juliet for example .. though the ending isn't a "happy" one it is a very much a timeless story .. really the only thing that may change from one time period to another is what keeps them apart... instead of feuding families it could just as easily be race, social class or any number of other things....

I guess the way I see it in every work of fiction there always has to be some element of truth or reality otherwise it may very well start raising suspicion and possible rejection...

I think that also happens in reality ..the old "If it seems to good to be true it probably is" ...not sure where that got started ...but it seems to be very true...
