“A Little Book About Writing”

It doesn’t matter what you think about Stephen King‘s fiction (heck, I couldn’t even get past the first couple chapters of Pet Cemetery), but On Writing is brilliant in its execution and intent. Who else can encapsulate the essence of being a writer with a wry, almost self-deprecating tone yet dish out sensible advice with very little BS? After reading this, I felt like gathering up all my rejection slips and staking them through the wall too (except I don’t have a stake and my landlord probably wouldn’t appreciate the hole in the wall).
