"King on writing"

What a great "little" book by Stephen King, and a refreshing chance to read his writing thats NOT in the "horror genre".
It makes sense to read this sort of book as it IS people like him that get read and he KNOWS writing.
I know some don't like his work, but you have to give credit where due, and he DOES his job better than most.

The fact is if you can't learn from someone like this, you "aint reading it right" ;-)

Every writer should read books like this, all writers are readers, thats true of any "style" of writer, no matter what they write.
If you write in a'll read them too.. likewise for any writer.

If you get a chance to read it then do.. it is recommended.

I was shocked at the fact that John Creasy, the British novelist wrote a staggering 500 books. :-0 Under ten different names.
That is truly a remarkable amount of books, as King himself admits to writing about 35 books, and I always tought he was a prolific writer too.

Take care,

"Get out of my inbox"

These last few weeks I have started to unsubscribe from a few ezine /newsletters.
Why? Well it's not because of who writes them thats for sure, a few of them have been big names, but lately I have got fed up with those that seem to email you two or three times in a day..
Is there any need for this?
I don't think so.... Treat people how you like to be treated, so I would never send you two or three in the same day.
To make it worse, they are more often than not pitching something at me.
I mean one email with a pitch... and another email that I would ususally expect is ok.

Do they really think it's a good thing to do?
Beats me, but they do it, so I have unsubscribed.

So there are some things you should not copy just because they are a name.
Fair enough some people may have bought from it, but long term they lose out.

Is it just me.?....
