Words of Wisdom From Stephen King’s On Writing

I attended the Write on the River conference on Saturday. I intended to listen to Jess Walter, the Keynote Speaker, Friday night but I got the location wrong. It’s too bad – I heard it was really good.

I didn’t have time to write up a post about it but I will later.

Today I’ll just give some tidbits I’ve read about in Stephen King’s book On Writing. I’m not even remotely done with the book because I keep getting caught up in other books.

I was so stressed about getting ready for the appointment with the agent on Saturday that I put King’s book aside to read more fluffy things that took less thought.

Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake and Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore. They’re good books. Still reading Texas Gothic. Both are YA. Both are about ghosts.

Have you read On Writing? Did he say anything that struck home for you or that you particularly enjoyed?


About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming a world-famous writer. I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and a POP Pilates instructor. I didn't think I'd succeed at that last one but I did it! I confronted my fears, dealt with things I didn't want to deal with, and completed the training! POP Pilates classes are coming soon to mid-Nebraska!
