The View From the Outside Cover of My Yet Unpublished Book(s)

The best things in life are truly free.

A friend recommended Stephen king's book "On Writing" and I picked it up at my favorite place-the Modesto Library!
After I trudged through the somewhat sad and seedy story of his early life (chalk that off the list of possible correlations of my life to famous writers) I got into the meaty business of how to be a writer. In the middle of a very practical treatise on making writing an everyday part of your life (or perhaps, 'how to fit a life into your reading and writing') I quote the King on this and declare it to be a true treasure.

"If you feel you need permission to do all the reading and writing your little heart desires, consider it hereby granted by yours truly."  He was 53 when he wrote this, and I'll turn 53 this year. Dare I call it a sweet coincidence?

To all my word-loving friends I pass this on, for free.

Thanks for reading!
