I feel like I should be standing on a balcony with sweeping hand gestures when I say this, but good writers know how to evoke a response from their reader. We're talking a lot about this lately. The boys and girls know that great writers find ways to make readers laugh, cry, get angry, feel calm, convinced and so on. They know that it's through word choice and ideas that we achieve this.
We're taking baby steps, but one this phrase evoke a response is going to be one that we'll focus on in our writing for some time.
We're also talking about other things that great writers do. Have a look at the photo and you'll see what else we're focused on right now.
