Emacs for interactive scripts?
I suggest using some Common Lisp implementation instead. They are more
general-purpose Lisp dialects I like CLISP.

    #!/usr/bin/clisp
    (format *query-io* "Type something: ")
    (format t "You wrote: ~A" (read-line *query-io*))

works for me.

I'll try that. I already understood that elisp is 'old' and that clisp
has a lot more possibilities. One thing. Using your script gives:
    ./dummy.lisp: line 3: format: command not found
    ./dummy.lisp: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token `('
    ./dummy.lisp: line 4: `(format t "You wrote: ~A" (read-line *query-io*))'

these are not clisp messages.
these look like (ba)sh messages.

Using 'clisp dummy.lisp' works.

maybe clisp is not installed as /usr/bin/clisp?
