On Writing review



“Long live the King” hailed “Entertainment Weekly” upon the 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.

Well, here is another one I failed to review – don’t know what is wrong with me.  This review is short but I find reviewing nonfiction very hard.

Great book on the craft of writing and publishing from the master storyteller. It took me a while to get thru the book – not because it wasn’t good but because nonfiction is a struggle for me. But King does a great job and makes me hope that some day I will join the ranks of the published. 🙂

  1. I have this book and have read it but if you get a chance to hear the audio with King reading it, it is even better.
