What images are you creating? How do you know?

I’m watching a woman sitting across from me on the train reading a book that I have read and it makes me wonder … How is she experiencing it? What are the pictures she sees in her mind as she brings the story to life? Do the characters look the same? Do the voices sound the same?

I doubt it. Her experience, her background, all of her points of reference are different than mine. How could they come together to create the same images?

That makes me wonder about my work out in the world. Does it create the images I intend it to?

What do you do to check that you are creating the images you intend to?
