I'd like to see this up and running again. I've been writing mostly prose lately and would appreciate some feedback.

Has anyone read "On Writing" by Stephen King?

I have. Loved it - half auto-biography, half tips. I liked his tone a lot... pointing out that "this" is what worked well for him, but who knows, might not work for other people. The unabashed seeming honesty really kept me hooked.

I got it at the library and liked it so much I went out and bought the book!

I like the style he describes. Clear and concise! He actually made me excited about writing again.

I've read "On Writing" in fact I read it recently when my grammar instructor recommended it. It is a very good book. Like Christopher, I too, enjoyed the fact that King said "this" is what worked for me and may not work for others.
