Ah, good point. There's a reason for this, but I'll have to think of a way to make it seem less strange without giving too much away.
And here, in one single line is encapsulated the entire problem:

You're thinking in terms of the plot and information, and the reader knowing or not knowing the details. But plot is easy. Writing well enough to make the reader need to turn the page is a bitch.

If you are in the protagonist's POV, as against you the author talking about the story, the reader knows only what the protagonist knows—as that character knows it. And that character must solve the problems because it's his story. So the reader knows what he knows, when he knows it and as he knows it, which means you've given away only what he, and the reader need in the moment they both call "now."
As a writer, to deal with this world, you must accept it and your own ever-so-finite limitations as they are. Facts are something you have to take for granted. But you don’t worship them, for your security, your certainty, is in yourself.
In your feelings.

Feeling, indeed, is what drives you forward. Wrapped up in your story, you face the future, not the past. The tale you tell excites you. You write out of the thrill of that excitement. Everywhere, you see new possibilities, new relationships. “What if--?” is your watchword. The rules, when you think of them, are incidental.

Which all is merely another way of saying that the writer is subjective more than objective; that his inner world is more important to him than the external one. Intuitively, he knows that “plot” and “character” and “setting” and all other analytic elements of the craft, taken apart from story, are just that: analytic; which is to say, dead, in the same way that any part of a dissected laboratory specimen is dead.

Because most readers read to feel, not analyze, they love the work of the subjectivist-turned-writer.

For precisely the same reason, they ignore the fiction of the non-creator, the analyst.

At the moment, because of your presentation approach you are an analyst.
