On Writing, by Stephen King

Over the past couple of years, I have read a book by Stephen King that I would like to recommend.  The name of the book is “On Writing”, and it is essentially a recounting of King’s career and how he came to be a popular author, but after the story telling is done, he talks a lot about the writing process itself.

I would appeal to any budding writer (or even veteran) to check this out, as not only is the story an interesting one (King had sort of a weird, albeit not tragic, youth), and the advice and tips he gives on writing can be pretty helpful.  I have read the book twice simply out of enjoyment, and find each read-through to be very motivational.
