Click on the image to get “On Writing“
All of us have had them – moments when we say to ourselves:
“What am I doing?”
“Do I know?”
“Can I write?”
“Or am I fooling myself?”
What many of you might not know is the guy pictured above had quite a long period of his life in which he asked himself the same questions. Yeah, The Master of the Horror Novel had a lot of problems getting it done in his early years.
His book “On Writing” teached about writing techniques – and you also get to learn a great deal about Stephen King, his family, the struggles he has endured, both pre-fame and post-fame, and what makes him tick as a popular horror novelist that has sold hundreds of millions of books worldwide.
There are essentially 3 parts to this book. Part I is all about King’s life, and is autobiographical in a sense. Part II is all about the craft of writing from King’s personal perspective. Part III talks about King’s life after his tragic car accident that almost ended his life and writing career. All 3 parts are equally instructive and compelling.
It’s a must-read for anyone interested in improving their technique, and it’s a fascinating read. Enjoy
