Question, what do you think about purposely being vague in your writing for the purpose of keeping the reader in the dark? Having the MC have more information about a situation then the reader for the sake of a later reveal. I'd like your 2 cents on this (almost enough for a soda!) so I can determine if this is a writing flop on my part or do I just have a few test readers who hate being in the dark? I'll elaborate a little bit to help paint the picture. The MC receives a letter that says they (the sender) have located "them" and that "they" are in a museum doing (exposition) and the MC often talks about them as "they that and it" my readers think it's "bad wording" but the truth is the "person" in question is actually a semi sentient object, and the reader isn't intended to know that until the MC gets to the museum where "it" is displaying itself. It does so love to be looked at.
