Sweeping Them Away

“Being swept away by a combination of great story and great writing – of being flattened, in fact – is part of every writer’s necessary formation. You cannot hope to sweep someone else away by the force of your writing until it has been done to you.”

Stephen King On Writing (146)

  1. Isn’t he amazing? On Writing was the first book for writers that I loved. Most of the other ones just made me nervous. I also love Anne Lamott (but don’t mention me to her, she thinks I’m stalking her.) I once wrote a short story about a woman who crushed on King as sort of a writing idol. I might have to dig that one out and post it in honor of Halloween and the King of Monster Lit.
