Stephen King

Overview

Stephen King has published 65 novels, including the mega-hits Carrie, The Shining, and Misery. For King, aspects of writing and storytelling have always come naturally. Giftedness does come into play, but so does a certain 'luck of the draw.' Stephen King believes writers are born, not made.

Yet, having a gift isn't enough; one must honor their gift if it is ever to be fully realized. Since success in writing relies on an audience's willingness to read, respect for that audience is of critical importance.

King lays out his method for writing with authenticity, for an audience, and, above all else, the crucial importance of practice.
