A meme from Booking Through Thursday.
Today’s topic is “How much do you visualize when you read? Do you imagine faces for the characters? Can you see the locations in your mind’s eye? Or do you just plunge ahead with the story, letting the imagery fall to the wayside?”
I don’t consciously imagine unless there is particularly detailed description that almost drags you into the imagery. However I do visualize. I once described to my mother a scene in a movie because I couldn’t remember the title of the film. However it was not a scene from a film. It was a book scene that I had imagined so well that I forgot I experienced it in text. I often prefer to not try to form overly specific images of characters especially.
