On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Who wouldn’t want to learn writing from the master of horror?
I’ve wanted this book since I first started writing (i.e a decade ago) but eventually forgot all about it.
So when I found a sale copy at my nearest bookstore I had to have it.
“On Writing” shares a bit of Stephen King’s life and his tips for writing and editing.
I loved getting a look at his life and how he grew up. The writing advice was useful but honestly it bored me a bit.
I know it’s a writing book but by the time King started giving advice I just wanted to hear more about his story.
(If it isn’t obvious as yet, I know nothing about Stephen King besides knowing his work).
This was a really interesting, well-written book that I’ll definitely keep as a reference guide.
Now I’m going to go down a Stephen King Google rabbit hole.
