Description

Immensely helpful and illuminating to any aspiring writer, this special edition of Stephen King’s critically lauded, million-copy bestseller shares the experiences, habits, and convictions that have shaped him and his work.

“Long live the King” hailed Entertainment Weekly upon publication of Stephen King’s On 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.

  • Inspiring the practical

    From Robin Huang
    Stephen King writes yet another book that I cannot put down, albeit this one does not haunt me at night, and the morning after I finish the book. However, it is just as powerful, and as memorable as many of his other best sellers. King offers advice on how to write well from the perspective of a popular author. It is both practical and inspirational. Candid, and straight forward, On Writing speaks to the hearts of many aspiring writers, by drawing on the author's own experiences. A must read!
  • Emulating the master

    From Ms Media
    This book is an intimate conversation with Stephen King about how he writes. It is jammed with useful advice on how to avoid writing a boring novel. King admonishes the budding novelist to read and write profusely, as hard work is the only path to success. I have used this handbook to in my grade 12 English Literature class - it keeps us grounded. It is easy to both read and understand and could also be used for a junior level class.
