Very interesting articles and insights. I think the the ah-ha moment was only tell them what they need to know. This one is hard for me, because there are aspects of my characters I want to tell the readers about but they don’t really need to know or understand. It makes sense when you think about it in the terms of the article how readers are left to interpret these items differently. I can think of books that I’ve read or proofed that had items like this in them, and I found myself flipping back to sections to reread where I missed information in the book. More often the answer is I did not miss the information but interpreted the story or feelings incorrectly and was reading the book with a different view book than the author intended. I mean and these are published authors, not just someone trying to write like me.
looking forward to another one of your classes!
