When you write a story, you're telling yourself the story, he said. "When you rewrite, your main job is taking out all the things that are not the story."

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible
By Madison on December 31, 2017
Stephen King is a genius. The first part is a memoir, written in short pieces. His life is intriguing, I would have read it just for that. The rest is advice on writing, which he intertwines with his past and his own successes and pitfalls. My only complaint is that the material of the cover shows fingerprints and smudges (I attempted to show in the picture), but it has no effect on the book, so it's really not a big deal. Highly recommend for writers and non-writers alike.
