On Writing by Stephen King

On Writing: A Memoir of the CraftOn Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book gives a selection of valuable pieces of advice for young fiction writers. But, what I took from this book was a renewed love for the craft, for the act of focused and solitary work. It sparks love for the well crafted object.
I think that the subtitle “A memoir of the craft” tells a lot about what Stephen King’s intention with this book. Maybe, it wasn’t in the first draft, but it was in the finished version of the book that I read.

This short volume deserves to be read by anyone, and not only wannabe writers. I really enjoyed it.
