A remarkable writer can:
- Scan a sales letter and immediately identify specific problems … and then articulate the solution to those problems.
- Read a story and pinpoint where the story fails — and why.
- Review a speech and offer advice on how to make a lecture open and close with a bang.

It isn’t exactly like a social conversation because you aren’t giving information in the usual sense of the word or flirting or persuading anyone of anything or proving a point; it’s more that you are revealing something whole in the form of a character, a city, a moment, an image seen in a flash out of a character’s eyes".
