Free Writing #5

What I found interesting in this chapter of ¬†was this excerpt, “It is easier to write about a simpler world, one in which characters don’t think about, don”t imagine, everything we think about and imagine” (Turchi, 45). If find this to be an interesting because, to create a compelling story or map, the characters and the world needs to appear like our world by persuading an audience to not focus on minor details. ¬†Details like, “whats the weather today?” or using the bathroom. All these little details are shrouded by the author manipulating the scene to deceive the audience of how basic this really is. By using blank spaces on maps, omniscient and not knowing the unknown creates complexities of maps that may appear basic.
