STEPHEN KING SAYS

The February issue of READERS DIGEST has an article by Stephen King giving some of his quotes. Here are a few I found interesting,

"There's one thing I'm sure about. An opening line should invite the reader to begin the story. It should say: Listen. Come in here. You want to know more about this."

"You know, sometimes people say to me, 'Why do you choose to write that creepy stuff?' An I usually say, 'What makes you think I have a choice?'"

"I take a book almost everywhere. Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life."

Some good stuff. I wonder why people don't carry around books, too. A paperback takes up very little room, and if you lose it, or have it stolen, it costs very little to replace.

I do quibble with his having no choice about writing the creepy stuff, though. He's written some wonderful stories that weren't creepy at all.

I love books, I mean you can't get that feel and smell from a tablet or screen. To hold a book and fell as the weight shifts from one side of the book to the other as you read is wonderful. It gives you a sense of accomplishment and pride, along with the knowledge and sense of fulfillment reading a book brings. People now a days just think about what's easy and saves the most time, they don't stop to enjoy life and what's around them. So stop for just a few minutes and read an actual book and see what will unfold in front of you. Thanks Lillie for posting that!

A couple other good ones are "If You Want to Write" by Brenda Ueland, a bit dated but fabulously written, and "Bird by Bird" by Anne Lamott. And either of John Gardner's books, "On Becoming A Novelist" and "The Art of Fiction".
