Writing advice from Stephen King

Today’s writing advice from the author of more than sixty books and more than 200 short stories – Stephen King.

This advice can be found in his fantastic book On Writing, available in all good bookstores. Much of the advice in this book is practical and a great deal of it has to do with letting go of what you think you should be writing, and writing the thing you can and must write.

Very good advice, indeed.

Book buyers aren’t attracted, by and large, b y the literary merits of a novel; book-buyers want a good story to take with them on the airplane, something that will first fascinate them, then pull them in, and keep them turning the pages.
