Nickel and Dimed Reflection
After reading the beginning of this book I have come to realize how important it’s for the writer to really understand what they’re writing about. In this piece the author actually lives the lifestyle of a minimum wage person by working long shifts for 7 dollars and hour while still trying to make the rent. I think this is a great piece of writing because this person was able to communicate the lifestyle of a minimum wage worker by using her education and then living in that kind of lifestyle. To me this is the only way a person could legitimately tell the reader what it’s like to live like that. I believe this is something all writers should do to really understand what they are writing about and communicate that by using their skills.
