I found this part about ethics to be very interesting. One part that stuck out to me was the part about Playing Fair with Subjects. I found that part interesting, because it talks about how narrative writers must learn how to strike a careful balance (172). It talks about how as a writer our job is for the reader and the subject. I kind of struggle with this part, because if I get to know someone I feel bad knowing that I am going to have to share the good and bad. I just need to keep in mind that it is a "dual responsibility" as a writer. It is important to spend time and get to know the subject that you are writing about, but it is also important to share the facts. How and when do you decide to draw that fine line and balance between the two? I still need to work on that.
