We went to the Olive Garden on our date night. It was very pleasant. Our server made sure our drinks were filled, our empty plates removed, and our food just right. So, is there a relation between servers and writers?
Yes, yes, yes!
How, you ask?
What if the waiter forgot to fill your drink? Or your food was cold? What about forgetting the cutlery for your juicy steak?
We don't notice the server if everything goes smooth. But oh, boy, we notice alright when she messes up, don't we?
Well, that's how it's like for writers. The reader won't notice the writer as s/he reads our work, but if we don't polish them books, our authorness screams in their faces and reminds them that they are reading a book.
How do you feel when you stumble across author intrusion?
