King’s take on “What Writing Is” was quite interesting to read, and he brought
up many points that I had never thought of before. After reading this piece, I
would say that writing is creating a piece of literature that can portray
events, almost in a telepathic way, from one person to another. King explains
this by saying that even though we are not with him and are not talking to him,
he was able to bring our minds together into one single thought; and this was
done simply by writing.
experience with writing in the past is mostly writing assignments for school. I
enjoy writing, and I have done a couple different writing projects outside of
school. My previous definition of writing would be it is a way to express your
thoughts or tell a story on paper to share with others. This is different than
King’s definition because I did not think of writing as a form of telepathy.
