Why I Want to Grow Up and Be Stephen King, even though I Can't Read His Books
Let me start by saying I love Stephen King.
He’s a talented, gifted writer, and an amazing person. But I have yet to read one of his books to the end.
They scare the daylights out of me.
It’s not that I haven’t tried. I have. I even own eight of them. His writing is just so descriptive, and realistic, that I end up with nightmares. Who wants to have clowns invade your dreams, or have a car chase you into a nightmare from hell.
As a writer I strive to be just like him. His readers are loyal and they count the days until his next one is released. I know, I live with one.
I want to have a shelf like this one filled with my books some day.
Stephen King knows his craft. His books are well written and show the long hours he puts into them with the physical and emotional details in each one.
Great words to live by.
The best advice I got when I started to write was that I should do this because it was something that I loved to do, not something that I had to do.
This is also true. I’m an avid reader. To me it’s a tool to better my craft. But my reading choices are contemporary romance and suspense. Sorry Stephen, nothing on my list that will keep me up at night, or hiding under the covers when the door squeaks open.
One day I hope to meet this great man to tell him I admire his ability to scare us to death and that I want to be a writer just like him. Until then I will continue to write, build my library, and improve my skills so that someday someone will want to grow up to be just like me.
And since this is his Birthday month I want to wish Stephen a very Happy, Happy Birthday.
Thanks for stopping by. I have two more books coming out this year. I can promise you a few more sleepless night, but with happy dreams.
