Erica Kleine yes! I have followed that rule my whole life! I usually find one or two people that are obsessed and I listen I’ve made good use of this with fiction: I don’t have the patience to read long novels but I like to know the stories But I don’t find the stories as interesting as I do the people that find the stories interesting So to kill two birds with one stone, whenever somebody says You must read: Dune, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games / see movie: Fight Club, Idiocracy, oh too many to name… What I do is I try to convince them to tell me. It is extremely difficult to get a fan to tell you the story that they want you to see or read. But I keep at it and I am just as insistent that they TELL me the story as they are that I READ the story It can take a while But when they do, I got to experience the excitement that I would never feel about the story through them. And I may not know all the little details but I will have some sense from a fan point of view of what’s good and not. This has also gotten me through trying to understand what various video games are or YouTubers are about because i don’t do either. Works very well and saves time and makes people happy

Erica Kleine yes! I have followed that rule my whole life!

I usually find one or two people that are obsessed and I listen

I’ve made good use of this with fiction:

I don’t have the patience to read long novels but I like to know the stories

But I don’t find the stories as interesting as I do the people that find the stories interesting

So to kill two birds with one stone, whenever somebody says You must read: Dune, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games / see movie: Fight Club, Idiocracy, oh too many to name…

What I do is I try to convince them to tell me.

It is extremely difficult to get a fan to tell you the story that they want you to see or read.

But I keep at it and I am just as insistent that they TELL me the story as they are that I READ the story

It can take a while

But when they do, I got to experience the excitement that I would never feel about the story through them.

And I may not know all the little details but I will have some sense from a fan point of view of what’s good and not.

This has also gotten me through trying to understand what various video games are or YouTubers are about because i don’t do either.

Works very well and saves time and makes people happy
