King started writing Sci-fi short stories as a young child and was rejected time after time. He also wrote for the school newspaper along with his brother. But he did get his start by eventually selling shorts.

He never stopped writing and his big break was Carrie, that he had trashed. His wife convinced him to finish the story and helped him with it. Especially with the shower scene.
