Essay Topic 2

Coincidence in life is one thing, but coincidence in literature and storytelling is another. The general rule that most writers learn is that it's safe to use coincidence in a story when the result is to get the hero into trouble, or into more trouble than he or she is already in. If the writer succumbs to the temptation to use coincidence to get the hero out of trouble, or to serve the necessities of the plot, the reader's enjoyment diminishes because the natural skeptic in the reader says, "this isn't plausible."

1. What do you think is meant by this statement? Use examples from the book to support your answer.

2. Do you think this statement is true? Why or why not?

3. Why do you think something that happens in real life might not be believable in a novel? Support your answer with examples from both real life and fiction.

4. How do you think the cliche "the truth is stranger than fiction" corresponds to this statement?

Essay Topic 3

1. What do you think is meant by this statement? Use examples from the book to support your answer.

2. Do you think all beings have untapped potential? Why or why not?

3. How do you think a person could explore his/her untapped potential and then use that potential?
