5.0 out of 5 stars A good kick start, 13 Aug 2001
By 
This review is from: On Writing (Hardcover)
I never thought I would sit chuckling over a Stephen King book, but the first half was very funny. Then I found the writing end was inspirational. It made you WANT to read and write and described the writing state of mind so well.
I was talking about the plot free approach to some friends, in a car full of silent kids. They all suddenly started talking at once, when I paraphrased SK's approach to the restraints of plot. They have all felt repressed by the heavy planned out plot system, set out by teachers. I think they will start writing with fresh hope, as I know I will.
This book has made me feel more positive and excited about writing than the 6 others I have read over the last 15 years. There might be a few missing elements, but the germ of inspiration overrules that. That is priceless.
