On Writing

While this book isn’t new, it’s timeless, and one I highly recommend to aspiring writers. It won’t take you long to read it and more importantly, you won’t fall asleep while turning the pages. In his usually highly entertaining style, Mr. King gives you two views into the writing world.

The first is a short memoir of his life, and the second is where you’ll truly find the inspiration, and how-to, or how-not-to writing gems. Being a huge King fan, I found both completely enjoyable. He made me laugh out loud more than once. I confess, it’s the only writing book to have done so.

If you are looking for a straightforward book, such as, a step by step guide to writing a best selling novel, this isn’t it. But what it is, written in his quirky straight forward fashion, (which I love so much), is an incredible book about writing.

  1. I love this book, too. Not dry and boring like so many others, and his advice is all spot-on. Made me really feel "close" to King, too. He's a cool person.
