My writing has to make sense, and, to me, it has to make sense to everyone- not just me or people who resonate with my writing. I don’t mean “make sense” in the grammatical way, but it has to be applicable to the real-world. It’s not that my readers have to agree with what I write, it’s not that they have to like it- but, it has to be plausible, realistic, or I don’t think I could actually write it. Of course, I write personal, subjective, narrative pieces- but I try not to make far-fetched claims in my writing because I hate seeing those in pieces that I read.
I think it has to do with my small desire to kinda always be right (oops). I don’t mind that I’m not agreed with, but I do make sure that people can say, “Oh, yeah that makes sense.”
