On Writing by Stephen King

On Writing, a Memoir Of The Craft

by Stephen King

Stephen King is a prolific author and one whom I was anxious to know more about. This wonderful book is part autobiography and part writing lesson, Mr King proclaims it “…a kind of curriculum viate-my attempt to show how one writer was formed.”

As I read this book in turn I laugh and I cry. And I always learn something. I have read this book more than a half dozen times and each time it is as delightful as the first. I use to tell my children to never be afraid to seek advice but to think about the person from whom they were seeking the advice. The example I use to give them was if you want to know about business go to the successful business owner not someone standing in the unemployment line. If you want to understand money talk to a banker not someone standing in the welfare line. If you want to understand writing and how one writer was formed read this book. Mr King definitely has the curriculum viate.
