Maybe you start reading one over your lunch break and, if it’s the right one, before that peanut butter cup you brought for dessert even has a chance to finish its melting shape-shift into some kind of sugary cement, the whole world has been destroyed around you and then _________(2)__________, and nothing is quite the same again. This happens whether you like it or not. Great stories practice this violent beauty on you in a variety of ways: some by making an ________(3)____________ world familiar (or vice versa), some with a slow burn , some with a voice that colonizes your thoughts. Some do it quietly, almost without you even noticing, and some do it with high wire acts of imagination or ________(4)_________ that make you into a breathless witness. The trick, then, is finding the right story, one that is capable of such a thing. This is no easy task.

Ultimately what any reader can offer you in terms of _________(5)________ is actually the same thing that any good writer can offer you with the story itself.
