For years I dreamed of having the sort of massive oak slap that would dominate a room..In 1981 I got the one I wanted and placed it in the middle of a spacious, skylighted study in the rear of the house. For six years I sat behind that desk either drunk or wrecked out of my mind...A year or two after I sobered up, I got rid of the monstrosity and put in a living-room suite where it has been...In the early nineties, before they moved on to their own lives, my kids sometimes came up in the evening to watch a basketball game or a movie and eat pizza..I got another desk-it's handmade, beautiful, and half the size of the T. rex desk. I put it at the far west end of the office, in a corner under the eave...I'm sitting under it now, a fifty-three-year-old man with bad eyes, a gimp leg, and no hangover. I'm doing what I now how to do, and as well as I know how to do it. I came through all the stuff I told you about..and now I'm going to tell you as much as I can about the job...It starts with this: put your desk in the corner, and every time you sit down there to write, remind yourself why it isn't in the middle of the room. Life isn't a support-system for art. It's the other way around.

I'm not a horror fan and the trauma caused by watching CARRIE on the screen back in seventy-something kept me away from his books all these decades.
I got and read this one with the sole intention to learn from King, and I MUST say it was quite a satisfactory and highly enjoyable experience.
I am very impressed and in love with the Author AND the Person, as well as very grateful for the priceless lessons. THANK YOU!!
This book was great. Stephen King is so down to earth and funny. You really get to know alot of things about his life.
This book was excellent!
