Issue's explaining a new concept within your own stories universe. (Not sure if this should be in the plot section or what, sorry.) I'm sure this is a common issue but for lack of a word to search for, I thought I may just ask all of you for your thoughts on the matter. There are things often within a story that do not appear in the real world. For goblins, dwarfs and such things, a description is often enough to explain them to the reader. However, what if it is an extra sense or supernatural ability? Since most people would not have encountered these things first hand it becomes more difficult to explain to the reader. My own example (and the reason I thought to ask); Mind reading. I know how I would like to portray it and the various feelings that I've attached to the notion. Upon trying to introduce this to the reader however, I am flailing about trying to fit this all in without making it too noticeable that, that is what I'm doing. As this is also a central part of my story (mind reading) I need the reader to catch on quickly. I have a few ideas as to what I will try but was curious as to what others have thought to do? So how have you gone about clarifying something within your story, or explaining a new idea about the way your world works?
