Stephen King on WritingFor Stephen King on writing
These memoirs come as a surprising width - what is a Memoiren of a crafts? His memoirs are divided into several parts, including: - What is writing (103-137). - About writing (141-249). Three prefaces precede his chapter, and despite their length, these memoirs read quickly - but not too quickly.
However, the width of this work comes from the way King interweaves his own lives and crafts - a royalty guest is recommended not to explore the cabinets! He is an writer and a well-known name. It is interesting that Tabitha, the King's Lady, saved an early Carrie's script from the garbage, as King recalls:
But faced with his ideal reader (Tabitha), who told him that this script was promising, King went back and gave Carrie his best chance. The idea of an ideal reader is interesting. He is writing for his woman Tabitha, who also happens to be an writer, which seems very happy because she can give her opinion to the king in an understandable languag.
declares King: For King, the Ideal Reader is particularly useful when it comes to assessing the pace of the narration - "the pace at which your narration unfolds" - and the detail in your backstory-"all the things that occurred before the beginning of your narration, but have an influence on the title story" (220-223). A part of the background in King's Memoirs develops into a cover piece in his postal script, in which he extensively discusses his experiences of being run over by a Dodge van in June 1999 while running along a highway in the Maine countryside (253-255).
That history of his near-death experiences may have been just an interesting side note, except for the fact that King had motivation issues this past summers (265) in completing these memoirs. Unexpectedly, I think his biography took on a slightly higher profile because it was flung 14 ft into the sky (259) and was unlikely to live through that one.
The King has an interesting sight of the property. Describing the action as too big a mallet ( "a jackhammer") for the usual use of the fictional writer, he preferred to encourage his figures through stress events (164). The way a history develops from a given moment is interesting and potentially unexpected because humans find the nature in themselves when confronted by the circumstances of the world. We are foreign to ourselves, that is, until we are not.
Therefore, the suspense in the novel is difficult to copy with an action where the writer already knows where the narrative goes and how it gets there - it's better to scratch the action and explore the player's personality the way a player could. That' s why King looks for powerful encounters and researches interesting what-if scenes to test his personalities and write about how they react in an intuitive way (169).
On Writing, Stephen King's memoroir, is an interesting and useful work for would-be writers and seasoned writers because he researches both writing and writing as well. Movie enthusiasts could also be reading this volume to collect the background story of his movies, many of which are today iconic classic movies. First and foremost, I am reading this volume because I like to literate - perhaps you too.
