observations from a novelist who sometimes wants to say something small and see it published immediately

Reader Response, more than a theory


Most of the others in my writing workshop took a lit class in “the uncanny.”  When we read stories, they always see that. They see the blurring of dreams and reality; they see the Gothic.  I, on the other hand, watch a lot of detective shows. I read, seeing crime. Get out the yellow tape.
