Happy Birthday Stephen King!๐ŸŽŠ

By Hook Or By Book

Every book you pick up has its own lesson or lessons, and quite often the bad books have more to teach than the good ones.

Stephen King, On Writing: Memoir of the Craft

The glory of a good tale is that it is limitless and fluid; a good tale belongs to each reader in its own particular way.

      • Hugs! I think I told you that my first book I read by him was Carrie. I was 14 and was instantly hooked. And then when my dad died two years later, well for some reason all I read or re-read were his books. I was so angry and scared and I’m not sure why but his books brought me comfort. Weird huh?

        • We all have our quirks! I think that’s an understandable way to cope. You went to a twisted reality so you didn’t have to go through yours. I handled my pain with some bad things in my life. I struggled with drug addiction until 3 years. Been sober since but it’s been a hard journey. With my past, pain and my mental illness it was better to numb out. But my liver got chirrosis and cancer so helped me wake up but at first I was even more self destructive. Interesting books is such a better way. I loved reading as a kid but I battle mild dyslexia. I wish I used crazy books to cope. Didn’t Stepgen King battle drug addiction as well?

          • Oh Blimey Dani! I guess we both have horrific pasts.๐Ÿ˜ž But kudos to you for pulling yourself out. Alcoholism runs in both sides of my family which has always made me leery of having more than the occasional drink. And of course the migraines gave me an added incentive to stay away. From what I know, Stephen King became an alcoholic when he was younger, but had stopped drinking. But then when that driver hit him in 1999, and shattered his pelvis among other things, he became addicted to pain killers. For awhile he didn’t think he’d be able to write again. It was horrible.๐Ÿ˜–
