Reflection is the nonfiction writer’s gift to the reader, offering meaning to the car crash, the encounter with a heron, that afternoon flipping burgers. Therefore, it’s crucial to know when to let a scene do the work–letting the reader live in a specific moment–and when to pull back into exposition, summary, and meaning-making. You will generate several dramatic scenes for your memoir (or essay), then weave them with reflection. (Expect the unexpected.)
