I asked this question:
By "work of fiction", I meant "fictional story", or "fictional narrative", or "product of imagination that relates a series of connected imaginary events" -- you get the picture.
Most people answering and commenting on the question thought I meant "work of fictional literature". Consequently, the page is cluttered with discussion about the meaning of "fiction" rather than discussion of the word I am looking for.
How should I solve this problem? Ideas:
- Add text to the question body to clarify what I mean by the question title. (I have done that, but the page is still cluttered, and the question title still misrepresents the intended question.)
- Reword the question title. (The page would still be cluttered, and it would be even more confusing for someone who comes along later and sees all this irrelevant discussion about what a "work of fiction" is.)
- Ask a new question.
