Two important qualities that a successful author should have are creativity and imagination. Although I don't think that I have a very creative mind when it comes to coming up with fresh and new ideas and sustaining them into a full blown story or novel, I do have a very active imagination. One thing I am able to do quite well is to fully immerse myself in a book, TV show or movie that I like and imagine that I am actually there. The real world simply fades away and I'm transported into another realm.
I've been able to do it since I was very young, and can remember watching cartoons like 'Looney Tunes' and the Charlie Brown holiday specials and actually feeling like I was in a cartoon world and the action was happening around me. Everything seemed so innocent and simple there, so unlike the real world. Movies like the 'Star Wars' or 'Indiana Jones' series or 'Avatar' were also enjoyable to become immersed in because of the exotic locales and action, and TV shows like 'Twin Peaks' and 'Xena: Warrior Princess' were also fun to fully experience (A bad ass medieval chick in leather? Helllooo). Two of my favorite novels to lose myself in were 'A Christmas Carol' and 'Interview with the Vampire', both of which deal with the supernatural. Go figure.
If you could choose a novel, movie and/or TV show that you could literally be transported into and experience first hand, which one(s) would you choose and why?
