On WritingOn Writing by Stephen King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this an intriguing book but didn't absorb as much of the advice as I should of. The biographical bookends offer a peak into why Stephen King writes the type of novels he does along with his harrowing tale of being hit by a car. Make no mistake the author has strong opinions about what works in writing and how to become a writer. He firmly believes that most will never become great writers but that it possible to go from being a competent writer to a good writer by following the sage advice he lays out in the heart of the book. As someone that doesn't have plans to become a professional writer if I'm able to take away one or two tidbits I know that will help.
