Stephen King's Everything You Need to Know About Writing Successfully - in Ten Minutes.
The most amusing bit is how clearly it comes across that the person who offers the commentary at the end doesn't write very well.
I noticed that as well. It was almost so obvious that I'm wondering if he wasn't doing it on purpose.
"Our hyperrich storytelling friend" couldn't have been written but on purpose... I hope.
Though his sense of humour seems rather weird.
"...the only bad writer is one who doesn't get paid"? Not in my world.
I enjoyed King's book, On Writing, a lot more than this piece.
Harsh, but true IMO. Stephen King might not be my favorite writer, but he certainly knows exactly how to be successful in the trade.
