“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” – Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
Update: Go to 3:00 mark to skip the intro and go straight to Stephen King.
It’s not a big surprise that Stephen King is one of my favourite authors, and not just because I love the stories (and I do), but because he takes time to share and encourage other writers. If you are in a slump, have a look at the video and see how you feel afterwards. Ready to write again? I’ll bet you are.
One of the best things you can do for yourself is pick up a copy of Stephen King’s On Writing. You will find some seriously good guidelines and more inspiration. It’s not preachy, not a biography, just some excellent advice from an author who is very successful.
