5.0 out of 5 stars great read for aspiring writers, 25 Mar 2006
This review is from: On Writing (Paperback)
I was truly inspired by this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants an insight into the world of a bestselling author.I am currently working on my novels now and it was good to see similar insights shared with Mr King. There is also a bit of autobiography which gives you a feel of his life and his motivation. This book came at the right time for me in the evolution of my writing but the only true lesson to take from this book is to start writing now and get your ideas down in words.

This review is from: The Elements of Style (Paperback)
This handy no nonsense book was recommended to me by Stephen King in his foreword for the book "on writing". I fully agree with him and that no word is wasted and examples are given to amplify the points. Anyone who is interested in improving their prose should get one...and it's easy on the pocket.It should be the first book you buy on style and finding your voice.
