The book, "Stephen King On Writing," was recommended to me by several people, the first, being my brother-in-law. Wow! Great book! There is so much useful information that it's hard to choose which passage is my favorite. There's just too many. But this one I had to include on my blog; it struck a chord.
"Whenever I see a first novel dedicated to a wife (or a husband), I smile and think, There's someone who knows. Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot of difference. They don't have to make speeches. Just believing is usually enough."
