lizvogel: Good / Bad (Good Bad)
Note to self: Don't solicit in-depth critique on a subtle and indirectly-told story you know has a reader-interpretation problem when you're supposed to be de-bracketing and reviewing a novel chapter.

Focus? What's that?

More On Subtlety

lizvogel: lizvogel's fandoms.  The short list. (Fandom Epilepsy)
Happened across another post on the hazards and merits of subtlety, this time from Elizabeth Bear.

This makes me feel a bit better about my grail-like quest for the perfect conveyance of information, but also rather sad in that I have never had that one reader, outside of myself. And of course it works for me, I wrote it.

Adding a new tag for this, as it's a subject dear to my heart. Will have to go through and back-tag appropriately, some day when I have too much time.
