Here's what others have said about this:
I like point no. 1; for me it’s much harder than it seems to create an ‘exhaustive’ story – making the essay or the stories within self-cotaining – because having the stories detailed in my head does not necessarily mean I correctly input them into the text..
That’s why I asked someone I met recently to read these stories and to tell me if he understands the context, situation etc…. no reviews or anything, just to tell me if he understands the story. It’s been really helpful so far…
Brilliant, that’s definitely a smart move.
