Write Before Thinking


You like fiction written in Second Person

Some writers love the minutia of fine details. They think it helps the reader picture the scene in their imaginations with greater clarity. I, on the other hand, purposely keep such details from my writing. I think the reader comes up with their own scene regardless of what details I might include. I believe we like to create our own visions of what is occurring on the page. The writers who labor of the smallest details are also the ones who get most hung up on point of view. Always third person omniscient they say. Rarely first and never second, they add. Readers don’t like being addressed. It interrupts the suspension of belief.

Turns out they could be wrong. (From Physorg.com via Boing Boing)
