Professional Escapist and Self-Help Junkie. I have a background in the classics, but a love for fantasy, horror and science fiction
As a writing hobbyist, I try to listen to this at least once a year. Focus, motivation...Zig Zigler has nothing on Sai King!
I'm not a fiction writer; I'm a teacher. And I found many ideas in this book inspirational for myself and my students. I hope to pass it along to my budding writers who need some inspiration of their own and a "permission slip" to just start writing. Well done, Mr. King!
I read this book and listened to it recently. Both print and audio are treasures for any writer's library or for the devoted Stephen King fan. He tells it as it is about his process and writing.
I am a Stephen King fan and enjoy when he reads his own work. That said, this book is part memoir with plenty of personal revelation. The other part SK attempts to share what he believes is important for the beginning or intermediate writer. I do not plan on writing anything longer than a quick review on Audible and really enjoy this whole volume.
If you want a book on writing, you're found the right one. Listen to it on audible to hear the man and then keep the hard copy as a reference.
This little book is Insightful, entertaining, informative and moving. I feel inspired and better equipped to write that damn novel! Thank you Stephen King.
I appreciated King being so open and honest about his life and craft. On Writing was a great lesson on living and on writing.
En su manera de arrogancia personal don Stephen te motiva a perseguir tus sueños "escritoristicos". Además que te cuenta íntimos detalles de su vida.
As a kid I grew up in a house of Stephen King fan so it was no surprise he was one of my first reads years later happen upon this book was a real nice blast from the past and an amazing journey from a storyteller that has gone strong for decades. Stephen King was able to share his story with us I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it and coming full circle definitely recommended it to house I grew up in my mother
