The mind is an odd and surprising wonderland, but we have trained ourselves to ignore its twists and turns in favor of linear narrative.
As storytellers, we need to know things like how the air smelled or the texture of someone’s hair or the layout of a home—but such details are hard to find and easy to lose.
