I no joke had an hour long discussion about the Raven Cycle yesterday with two of my friends. We talked theories, ships, fears, and ships again. It was INTENSE, so I drew a picture of my babies to let out all the feels. And if you haven’t read The Raven Boys or The Dream Thieves yet, get on that! Your heart is just waiting to be broken.
Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) was an American writer. In his book Bagombo Snuff Box: Uncollected Short Fiction, he listed 8 rules for writing. The last of them was:
Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To hell with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
This is advice about not leaving your readers confused. I’m sure we’ve all read books that have left us wondering what’s going on. More than a hook to keep us reading, we quite simply have no idea what’s happening and why.
But you also need to be careful not to info-dump for pages on end. Only JRR Tolkien gets away with that!
You need to find a balance. You don’t want your readers to be left in the dark too much, but you don’t want to expose your entire storyline along with all its twists and surprises. Find the balance. The balance that keeps your reader turning the pages, while still keeping them informed.
This brings Kurt Vonnegut’s 8 rules to a close, but it is definitely worth noting that Vonnegut himself said “The greatest American short story writer of my generation was Flannery O’Connor… She broke practically every one of my rules but the first. Great writers tend to do that.”
