On Writing characters ï 105 D how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery Brilliantly structured friendly and inspiring On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it fans writers and anyone who loves a great story well toldback cov. On Writing A Memoir of the Craft Superb absolutely superb I ve listened to Stephen King read his audio book three times I can t recommend highly enough Since I m on the cusp of posting 1000 reviews here on Goodreads I d like to share my own thoughts on writing book reviews and link my reflections with Stephen King s wisdom on the craft of writing You cannot hope to sweep someone else away by the force of your writing until it has been done to you I recall back when I was in my 20s and 30s reading book reviews in the New York Times and Philadelphia Inuirer and thinking oh if I only had the opportunity to write book reviews I so much love book reviews I was truly swept away by well crafted book reviewsOf course with and now Goodreads all that has changed Eight years ago I seized the opportunity to write online book reviews I instantly fell in love with writing book reviews and made the commitment back then to post two book reviews a week Anyway I honed the craft of writing book reviews by writing and multiple rewrites until I took great joy in reading my own reviews This to say Stephen King is so right here work away until your writing gives YOU joy to read That way your writing stands a better chance of giving pleasure to others I m a slow reader but I usually get through seventy or eighty books a year most fiction I don t read in order to study the craft I read because I like to read The key here is LOVE reading books Like Stephen I m a slow reader but as a dedicated book reviewer I read lots of books every year And like Stephen I enjoy listening to audio books Fortunately I have two abilities that help greatly as a book reviewer 1 I can easily become absorbed in a book especially a novel really absorbed as if I m living heart and mind in the unfolding story and 2 both my short term and long term memory are excellent for fiction I can remember the details of the novels I ve read 50 years ago as if I read them yesterday an ability that comes in mighty handy when writing reviews If you want to be a writer you must do two things above all others read a lot and write a lot There s no way around these two things that I m aware of no shortcut So true Stephen I so much look forward to writing when I wake up in the morning understatement And I ve built up my endurance to the point where I have no problem writing 2 or 3 or 4 or even 5 or 6 hours at a time For me it s not a job grinding it out but rather a continual joy I echo South American author Fernando Sorrentino who said he would never let writing become a job To write is human to edit is divine Spot on sir The key is to take delight in revisiting your writing again and again reading it aloud to make sure the rhythms are smooth not clunky the ear has it all over the eye when it comes to judging rhythm When I first began writing book reviews here s what I did I wrote out great book reviews written by such authors as John Updike Michiko Kakutani and James Wood just to get the feel for what it s like to write a great review I also used a digital device to record their reviews and I listened while taking my walks After a few months I recorded my own book reviews alternating with the great writers until I was satisfied with my writing my rhythm vocabulary use of examples and metaphor Your job isn t to find these ideas but to recognize them when they show up For a book reviewer this means to be keenly aware of the book you are reading Underline passages as you read take notes read some of the book aloud to get a deeper feel for the author s voice reread pages or chapters or sections you feel are particularly important so as not to miss the subtleties of character the nuances of atmosphere along with the author s overall vision If you intend to write as truthfully as you can your days as a member of polite society are numbered If others think you a bookworm or egghead or oddball or goofball I ve freuently been judged all of these that s their issue not yours If possible avoid people who discourage you from reading andor writing Cultivate solitude become your own best friend make books your friends make authors your friends let the creative act of reading and writing become a shining polestar in your life The scariest moment is always just before you start I think Stephen is thinking of those who want to write a short story or most particularly those who set out or are in the process of writing a novel For me there are no scary moments in the process of writing book reviews not at the start not at the end or anything in between So saying I ll post this review

    On Writing (New) So it's become very clear to me now that very few writers actually write about the craft The only Latin American writer to do so? Mario Vargas Llosa who took several years off of his busy novel writing to write about his now ex pal Gabriel Garcia Maruez But I suddenly forgot who the King was no I mean literally I've not read him in years Hig
