50 Wise Stephen King Quotes

Writing is a very personal experience. I do think that there are certain experiences that turn a person into a writer, but that’s not the only experience, or the main experience. So that’s why I say that it’s not only about the writing, but about all the other things that go into it.

I don’t know about you, but the only things I want to hear from any writer are stories that are entertaining, inspiring, and engaging. If you have a heart, you get it. If you’re a writer, you’ll get it. And that’s exactly why you’re in this business.
