On our minds lately: the idea that writing could be a telepathic connection between writer and reader. We’ve been musing on this since reading Elspeth Probyn’s “Writing Shame,” in which she invites us to think through Stephen King’s comments on writing. She notes that, “for King, the goal of writing is a telepathic connection between reader and writers, whereby the reader “catches” the writer’s interest. It’s what you’re trying to say to the reader, not how good you sound to yourself. It’s about recognizing what you’re trying to do to the reader and what writing does to the writer.” What do you think? (You’ll have to tell us; we’re not telepathic quite yet.)
For Stephen King, writes Elspeth Probyn, "the goal of writing is a telepathic connection between reader and writers."
