On Writing – Stephen King

11 May

on_writing_stephen_kingI have read this book about three times, and I always like to keep it on my desk for reference purposes. 

It is one of the best books on writing I have ever read.  It combines real life stories about King’s life with advice about writing.  It covers everything from attitude, to nuts-and-bolts techniques.

I learned a great deal about how to write, but also about what makes a writer.  About the process of making it in the industry, and about the pitfalls, both before and after you are actually writing.

I can recommend it to anyone who has an interest in writing, or just an interest in how King became one.

    I agree, it is a wonderful, inspiring book. It makes me want to stop reading and start writing, which is always a good result in a book on writing.
