Writing is telepathy

"All the arts depend upon telepathy to some degree, but I believe that writing is the purest distillation. An important element of writing is transference. Your job isn't to write words on the page, but rather to transfer the ideas inside your head into the heads of your readers."
Stephen King

I like Stephen King, although I think I've only read two or three of his books. The Shining was one, and I had to turn on all the lights (and I was in my 20s). Also read Different Seasons which had Shawshank in it (great) and Apt Pupil (not so great). Can't remember what the third one was now, actually. Maybe it was just the two. Anyway, at least at horror he's the master.
