    Thanks for following my blog. You have awesome tips here as well.

    Stephen King’s On Writing is a pretty helpful book on the craft. I’m not particularly a fan of his work, and some of his advice is regurgitated information, but he writes in a way that easy to understand, and he shares his story as well.

      Thanks, Stacie. I can totally see where you are coming from. I haven’t necessarily been the hugest King fan, but I think for me (you hit the nail on the head), he tells his story about writing – which I really did enjoy (super quick read – made me want to jump straight from couch to typewriter).
