Trusting Your Audience

I read a lot about trusting your audience and not spelling everything out for them, and I’ve often thought that’s an area I have some difficulty in — I always want to make_absolutely_certain that everything is crystal clear…which, I think, comes from a couple years of writing for the adult entertainment industry LOL  Alas, it is often to the detriment of the story I think.

Recently I wrote a story and resisted the urge to draw everything out for my reader, trusting them to be able to put one and one together and get two.  I took a deep breath and submitted it to a publisher — who rejected it.  However, I got some very enlightening feedback regarding it — it seems I may have left too much unsaid this time.

I think it’s going to take some practice to get the balance right on this one LOL
