Nugget #108 -- Visceral Words and Rubber Mallets

Visceral writing means to me writing that seeks to 
bypass the brain and aim straight for the emotions 
and a tight feeling in your gut. That means that 
visceral writing triggers responses a reader can’t 
help but feel automatically, sort of the storytelling 
equivalent of a doctor tapping your knee with 
that annoying rubber mallet.
