I like this. I like this very much. Here’s an assembly of 20 quotes about writing from horror maestro Stephen King. I like the way he blends a wonder at the world with the coal face, roll your sleeves up, nuts and bolts of writing.
I read most of King’s work when I was 13 or 14, taking them three at a time from the mobile library that did the rounds outside Inverness. Cujo, Carrie, It and The Stand have all stuck in my mind; I recently found a copy of The Stand in a charity shop, and I’m looking forward to rereading it this summer. I’m not sure I could handle another bout of It.
