On Writing: A Memoir Of The Craft – Review

This is the second of the three books I recently bought on writing. The third got here today, and I’ll be certain to read it in the next little while.

On Writing: A Memoir Of The Craft

This is Stephen King’s memoir/writing book, and it’s really good. The memoir portion is chock full of interesting and amusing tidbit’s from King’s life. The writing part gives some excellent and practical advice.

The main point he makes is that you shouldn’t let anything get in the way of the story. Don’t bog your work down in useless information. One of my favorite lines in the book is, “first draft – 10% = second draft.”

It’s a great book and I highly recommend it.
