Faulkner vs. King and Irving

Tweet [1]

Faulkner once described the process of writing as following your characters around and writing down what they say and do. He presumably meant that even a book of fiction was not totally under the control of the author and that there was a certain organic inevitability once you created a character as to how the character talks and behaves. King and Irving evidently have a different model of how to write [2].
