Make readers believe the unbelievable

reading“Making people believe the unbelievable is no trick; it’s work. … Belief and reader absorption come in the details: An overturned tricycle in the gutter of an abandoned neighborhood can stand for everything.” —Stephen King

One thought on “Make readers believe the unbelievable

  1. Recently a reader commented on one of my flash fiction blog posts. In her comments she described how she had been reading my work while waiting to pick up her daughter. She was so moved, she was sobbing in her car and a stranger stopped to make sure she was ok. I have received comments from time to time, but this one meant the most. She felt it, she bought into it, she went exactly where I went when I wrote it. If there was never another comment, that was proof enough.


What do you think? I love hearing from you!
