This isn't your typical, formulaic how-to-write book, but a description of how one writer approaches the craft. King writes as if it’s the only thing he was put on this earth to do, and it’s a fascinating look at a towering figure in the publishing industry.

Description

King is easily among the world’s best selling authors, which is no surprise considering he turns out a novel or two a year, and has been doing so for over twenty-five years. In this immensely insightful and illuminating book, which all aspiring writers should read, King describes his routines, experiences, and methods that have helped shape his work over the years.

From his first novel, Carrie (1974), and onwards, King has been frequently asked how he writes so much on a regular basis. He would often hint at this or that during interviews, and sometimes include snippets in forewords of his books, but only in “On Writing” does he finally tell the whole truth of his process.

On Writing is divided into three main parts: autobiography, how to write, and an extensive account of the 1999 automobile accident that almost ended his life.

True to his style, he writes On Writing in the same crude and honest voice that all his books share, which makes it so much different than many other “how-to” writing books. He delivers to his fans the tips and tricks they’ve been asking for, and explains what makes him tick, producing story after story, year after year.
