On Writing by Stephen King

Everything you need to know and hear about writing and getting published. I am regularly asked about writing books and being published, and I always recommend this book as a start. The man has a talent for the written word and he shares everything in this book. Regularly re-reading it is what kept me going through the years of rejections until I had a manuscript accepted.

I’ve read it about 10 times, underlined, highlighted and memorized parts of it, and I won’t lend my copy out so go buy your own. If you don’t, you’re not really serious about being published.
