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.

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 1999and 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 itfans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.

This is the second or third time I’ve read the book (first time reading the Tenth Anniversary Edition). I love King’s writing, and his advice on writing here is short (maybe not always sweet) and to the point.

I’m going to reply to this review with a comment or two tomorrow so I can port over some of my highlights and tabs from the physical book to goodreads for my future reference. ( )

This book was not like other King books. So, if that is what you are looking for, this is not it. Anyway, I enjoyed it. It was liked discussing books and the writing process with King in person (as much as I could imagine anyway). I read this book because I want to be a writer. Not to the extent of King, but just for my own amusement. I think this book will be a big help. I even bought some of the books he recommends in this. I think they too will help. Great read. Even if you don't want to be a writer, if you like King and would like to know a bit more about him, from him, then this book is for you. Enjoy. ( )

The advice in the book is frequently a bit preachy and one-sided - it's about one method of writing, even if an effective one, and one proven by King's success. Also, there's probably more memoir here than advice or at least the balance is a little off for me. However, the memoir parts themselves are pretty interesting.
And all the advice he gives is rock solid. All said I'd highly recommend this book to any aspiring or practicing writers. It's a good book to get you writing and keep you writing. ( )

Excellent writing advice, and an interesting life story. Listened in audio, but I plan to get a real book version, so that I can refer to it easily. ( )

The best book ever written about the craft of writing. ( )

I was stunned by Mary Karr's memoir, The Liar's Club.
[Foreword] In the early nineties (it might have been 1992, but it's hard to remember when you're having a good time) I joined a rock-and-roll band composed mostly of writers.
[Second Foreword] This is a short book because most books about writing are filled with bullshit.
[Third Foreword] One rule of the road not directly stated elsewhere in this book: "The editor is always right."

"I believe the road to hell is paved with adverbs and I will shout it from the rooftops."
"... there is a huge difference between story and plot. Story is honorable and trustworthy; plot is shifty and best kept under house arrest." (page 170)
(p79) Look — here's a table covered with a red cloth. ... Do we see the same thing? We'd have to get together and compare notes to make absolutely sure, but I think we do. There will be necessary variations, of course: some receivers will see a cloth which is turkey red, some will see one that's scarlet, while others may see still other shades. ... and a cat with an 8, clearly marked on its back in blue ink ... This is what we're looking at, and we all see it. I didn't tell you. You didn't ask me. I never opened my mouth and you never opened yours. We're not even in the same year together, let alone the same room ... except we are together. We're close. We're having a meeting of the minds.
(p102) The object of fiction isn't grammatical correctness but to make the reader welcome and then tell a story ...
