On Writing: 10th Anniversary Edition: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

Aug 29, 2011 by


Stephen King’s On Writing is really sort of two books in one. Part short autobiography and part advice to novelists this is one of those advice-on-writing books that will not put you to sleep. As is his way in all
his writings King takes us on a journey into the past while weaving the information we truly want to know as writers inside his memories.

 

I enjoyed this book a lot and for me personally, it came at just
the right time. I would recommend this to anyone who is trying to make it as a
writer. King is honest, sometimes brutally, and he upfront about what a writer
can expect out of the publishing world.

Lightning by Dean Koontz

Aug 1, 2011 by

When I first began reading like a writer one of the first good mysteries I read was Lightening by Dean Koontz. The story is about Laura Shane, a troubled woman. She is orphaned, nearly molested twice and loses one of her closest friends in a tragic accident before her 13th birthday. But throughout her life she is shadowed by a mysterious guardian angel that appears with a bolt of lightning to rescue her.  The story follows Laura as she tries to solve the mystery of the man who is rescuing her. It is a wonderful story and it keeps the reader guessing. Lightening has long been one of my favorite books.
