    "If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or the tools to write." In 1999, Stephen King began to write about his craft -- and his life. By midyear, a widely reported accident jeopardized the survival of both. And in his months of recovery, the link between writing and living became more crucial than ever. Rarely has a book on writing been so clear, so useful, and so revealing. "On Writing" begins with a mesmerizing account of King's childhood and his uncannily early focus on writing to tell a story. ... Show more

Good Book For Aspiring Writers

by MaryAnn on Nov 4, 2012

Great book for an aspiring writer, and without the lengthy dialogue that King is so famous for.

The Teacher King

by MikeCost on Nov 17, 2011

Great book, one which I've read several times and quoted in my college writing classes.

A writer's writer

by robert d h on Sep 1, 2011

I could have skipped the first 100-page autobio, though I learned some tnings, but what came after that was invaluable to me in its insights to King's ideas about good -- and bad -- writing. Would I recommend it to a friend? I already have, to a couple, who write -- and it was recommended to me by one of the greatest young writers in America.

Heart of Creativity

by Eos3011 on May 26, 2011

Steven King presents a memoir that includes instructions on what an aspiring writer should notice. Mastery of language is a core development in a writer. King shows the way.

Jean Holloway

A Must for New Writers.

by Jean Holloway on Dec 16, 2010

Before reading this I don't think I actually realized how valuable a good edit can be. As a Stephen King fan, I had to learn from the creator of some of the most riveting fiction for over 35 years and I did! This book taught me when and why to make necessary changes and gives you personal glimpses into his life.
