      Stephen King’s On writing is a fantastic book that teaches writing in a whole different way compared to most books. I loved this book because it teaches you how to write in a manner that is almost instinctual. Instead of plotting and planning the ending, the plot, the beginning and the characters over and over again, Stephen recommends you treat your writing like a

      seed. This is fantastic and I always found this way of writing to be the best way of writing, but most teachers and professional, trained writers don’t really instruct people to write this way.

      Stephen is massively successful and I do not believe that that success is for nothing. I believe that studying great people in all areas of life is how greatness is achieved.


      • About the “seed” way of writing: Stephen basically suggests that a story must lead somewhere no matter what. If you simply plant a seed at the beginning of a story, say write 2000 words, then you have the seed of the story. From there on out, you simply write and keep writing. You do not overthink, you do not plan every single thing. You

        simply write and you keep writing until the story leads somewhere.

        All stories lead somewhere. This is the premise of this book. I also liked Stephen’s personal story and it shows his human side. I love it. I recommend this book for all writers everywhere. It truly shows how writing should be created from the heart and the soul and not from the pure cold logical mind.
