Book recommendation to get your writing in gear
Everyone who writes needs a kick in the pants once in a while to remind them that what they truly loved about writing in the first place. Recently, a friend loaned me a book that I highly recommend as that motivation that we all need once in a while. Oddly enough, it’s written by horror demi-god Stephen King. “On Writing: A Memoir” offers insights from the master of suspense that pertain to any kind of writing. Whether you’re writing a script or a book, comedy or horror, you need to read this guide to writing from one of the most successful names in the book and movie world.
If you care about your writing as a craft and not just a way to pleasure yourself at the keyboard this is a must read.
