On "There Will Be Sense" by Amelia Gray (3406 words) ****

What is your responsibility? If this were a movie, that's the line that might end up getting repeated over and over again the way Cool Hand Luke's "What we have here is a failure to communicate" does. Sure, What is your responsibility? doesn't have quite the same ring, but it becomes a kind of mantra in this story that takes on extra shades of meaning as the story progresses. Or try this: create a list of food you eat every day. Does it prove that your life is, like, boring? (If not, congratulations Mr./Ms. Cook.) This story is full of great techniques that convey things better than words by themselves could. Read it here at Diagram.
