Quick thoughts about *On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft* by Stephen King

Devoured this book.
Part one—CV—would be a good read for anyone, fans and the curious included. Shows of a strong sense of humor, and a real groundedness.

Part two “What Writing Is” leans towards the writer, but there is good stuff for Fans too. I don’t agree with at least one of his foundational points, but that matters less than one would imagine. Another idea I strongly resisted for a while, until what he meant became clearer, then I cottoned up to it. It’s an interesting view of writing, and there is much that one can take away from this. Plenty to leave, but that’s true of any book.
