I give Stephen King 5 out of 5 birds for his book On Writing! I’ve been reading different writing books of an on and this one was great. It’s not the typical “step one do this” but it begins with Stephen’s story from childhood on and how he became a writer. It gave me a lot of encouragement to keep trying and to continually try and master the craft. I felt like he was very upfront and the tips he did share were helpful. It was such a relief to read a best selling novelist had a pile of rejections long before he had a story picked up. It was an entertaining and educational read that I recommend!
