          I found the writing from Stephen King to be rather interesting.  The way he presented what most know as imagery as a form of telepathy makes one wonder.  He provided an adequate argument that he never once opened his mouth to speak to the reader and he and the reader were in different moments in time completely.  In comparison to The Academic Writer, King designs his work to be concerned with what “might, could, and should be.”  The subject presented is “open-ended and cannot be fully specified.”  Upon reading this selection by King, I was not completely convinced the way he presented telepathy was accurate, so I took it into my own hands to look up the word telepathy in the dictionary.  The Merriam-Webster Dictionary states, “Telepathy is communication from one mind to another by extrasensory means.”  I realize now that King did not trigger any of the senses one would associate as a normal means of sensory.  Therefore, his use of telepathy was indeed correctly used.  The Academic Reader states one must consider their “role as a writer who has something to communicate”, and that one must have “a medium that makes this communication possible.”  King surely has both.  He wants to convey that writing is like a telepathic means of communication and the only way to present this topic was surely through writing.  In my opinion, there would be no other way of communication to present this topic for it would key into one of the normal sensory functions of the human anatomy.  The work presented by King in comparison to The Academic Writer has truly been an interesting experience and makes me realize that rhetoric is used in many works we view today.
