    ITEM#: 12365171

    “Long live the King” hailed Entertainment Weekly upon publication of Stephen King’sOn Writing. Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer’s craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King’s advice is grounded in his vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999—and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it—fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.

    • Fun, Motivating Sarcasm At Its Best

      This is THE best book on writing I've ever read. It's laugh out loud hilarious in parts especially if you appreciate sarcasm. You feel as if you're just hanging out with Stephen, chatting about his life and writing. Course, he doesn't answer you back, if you're one like me to talk out loud to yourself while reading. BUT he does encourage you to contact him when you complete an assignment from the book that he challenges you to. The first half of the book is about his life. He provides the sometimes wavering journey of how certain works came to be from inspiration to celebration. There aren't many books that I don't want to end, but this is one of them. Now, with a lit fire under my rear, I'm ready to write! Thank You Mr. King.

    • This was a present

      This book was a present. It arrived roughly 2 weeks after I placed the order, so it wasn't the fastest delivery performance. But, it was for Christmas, so there was still plenty time to wrap.
