If he would inform, he must advance regularly from Things known to things unknown, distinctly without Confusion, and the lower he begins the better. It is a common Fault in Writers, to allow their Readers too much knowledge: They begin with that which should be in the Middle, and skipping backwards and forwards, 'tis impossible for any one but he who is perfect in the Subject before, to understand their Work, and such an one has no Occasion to read it.
This is very applicable to writing. You do have to start with things that are common or shared knowledge before you proceed onto things unknown to the reader. We mustn't confuse our readers, but rather make it clear and logical.
Also, to update my writing progress, I'm almost done with the 1st draft of my big 1 Act play for my Playwriting class. It's going to be a total of 6 scenes. I just hope it's short enough for her, because I'll probabaly have to add in more.
On an aside note, NaNo is 3 days away! (And it also snowed more this morning and some of it stuck, but now it's melted. Oh well.)
Until next time!
