Quick Note on Writing Fiction

I suppose this applies to poetry as well. It struck me that a writer is doing their audience a favor by simply observing human behavior versus being an expert on it.

That's what we relate to, the observation of what's happening, not the single-minded editorial on it. Just document what's going on for the characters with honesty. If you do it correctly, your readers will get what you're trying to say. They'll be reading your mind and they won't even know it.

That will be $300, please.
