On Writing – Stephen King

In 5th grade, my mom let me read The Mosquito Coast, because she’s tired of me blowing through the teen books in a day. The main character gets eaten alive by vultures at the end and I cried for an hour because I loved the character…

In 7th grade, my mom started letting me read Stephen King. I devoured Needful Things, The Shining, and then The Stand. I’ve never loved reading more than being lost in the worlds he creates. In 8th grade, I told my teacher I wanted to be a writer like Stephen King.

I finally started writing over a year ago, and I’ve never struggled with anything more in my life. I’ve always been my own worst enemy, but this last year makes the Dark Tower look appealing.

My uncle gave me this for Christmas, and I strangely took longer to read 291 pages than 1400+ pages in The Stand unabridged. Yet today, I read the one paragraph I haven’t been able to give myself. Written by the man who unlocked my own dream.

I’ve been crying longer than when that dude got eaten by vultures.

      1. It’s one of those synchronicities where: I was at this crossroads – am I writing or not? Am I gonna try or not? Then i got On Writing for Christmas and it’s as if there was never a choice in the first place ❤️

      2. Those are the best kind of crossroads, when two way streets become one way streets and you know what you gotta do. I love walking down a windy tunnel and even if you turn back, your still getting pushed forward, it’s like you only have one choice.❤️

      3. I am coming to believe more and more life is a choose your own adventure. The end is always the same, it’s always happening now and here – which is why time is an illusion. All possibilities, outcomes, and beginnings happen now. As you choose, you are choosing how difficult it is to get where you are going anywhere. 😊

      4. Haha, I don’t know. I like the way you think but illusions are of the mind, which is only imagined, not so much made. Time is something you can make, believe it or not. Life may be a multiple choice test continuously and our answers get easier or difficult pending on which letter we choose😁. But who knows, our destination may already be set, we just need to find our route.😉

  2. Love SK. He is on my list of “if you’d have dinner party with someone famous living or dead, who would it be?” I don’t want to write like him, i just want to read and escape to another world.

    I’m give quips and observe life in small jots. There is no book in me but I know a good author when I see one.

    Keep going girlie!!
