Stephen King on writing

No, not the book, but a great clip I found of him speaking at a UMass Lowell:

Despite being a long-time reader of his books, I’d never seen him speak as himself until watching this.

I did take particular delight in noting the many things that we have in common, such as: not plotting out a story before writing it; swearing like a trooper at every opportunity and…erm…well, that was about it.

He also comes across as not in the least bit pretentious (although the guy with him is a bit annoying!). And he does a nice line in gently mocking those in the audience who seem to be disdainful of anything that isn’t ‘high culture’.

A good way to waste an hour of your time…
