When I write, I hope that people feel like that are on a journey to reach my overall point. I enjoy reading books, which are taking me on a fictional or nonfictional journey. I am curious about where I am going and what will happen on the way. Perhaps, I need to master how I am taking my readers on journeys. Should I care if my readers prefer not to take a trip while reading what I write? Do my readers want to me to get straight to the point?
One of my favorite short stories to teach the writing process is A Worn Path by Eudora Welty. Welty’s ability to depict Phoenix’s long journey leaves much to the imagination.
