Title: On Writing
Author: Stephen King
Publisher: Scribner; 10 Anv edition (July 6, 2010)
Rating: 4 stars (Read It!-Choose It!)
The part memoir, On Writing by Stephen King delivers advice hand in hand humor stories to aspiring and experienced writers alike.
Two of my favorite sections in this captivating part memoir and part writing book were:
- C.V.–The hilarious memoir section.
- On Writing–The instructional and helpful part on writing, as the title suggests.
On Writing, written in first person, is a funny, yet informational read filled with useful pointers for all writers. Throughout the book, King includes personal experiences and how they shaped him as a writer.
Along with Bird by Bird by Anne Lammott, How To Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card, and The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White, On Writing is one of the best books on writing I’ve read.
