Book Beginnings on Friday: On Writing by Stephen King


Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

"In the early nineties (it might have been 1992 but it's hard to remember when you're having a good time) I joined a rock-and-roll band composed mostly of writers."

This is from the First Foreword.

In the very first sentence he talks both about writing, and about a fun thing he did in the past, which is extremely appropriate for a book that is both a memoir, and a writing guide.
