Plot or not?

I’m losing interest in plot, as a reader. I care less and less about a protagonist and a villain and a mystery and a battle, and more about character and prose and interesting thoughts. Will I ever read genre fiction again? I don’t know…

Also, I sense this is going to rub off on my writing. Though I’ve always been more interested in writing about ideas, and more recently thoughts and feelings, I always have felt I had to contain them within some kind of exciting plot. Turns out, I don’t (unless I want to make a lot of money I guess). And I ‘m going to write what I want to read! Which is not an adventure with fighting and mystery and all that!

Might end up with a smaller fan base, but… so be it…
