OK, fun folks, I know I'm smart, but I can't read your mind.
1 - If it's not there on the page, I can't read your mind to figure out what you mean.
2 - If you don't make it clear in the narrative, I can't read your mind where you want to go.
3 - If you don't raise the stakes, I can't read your mind why this is a story.
WHAT I'VE LEARNED: I used to think I was asking too much from writers. Not anymore.
If writers aren't willing to work at the craft and put it on the page, I don't have to be nice either. Pass. I'll wait for the writer who SHOWS me, not TELLS me, great writing.
