The readers can download On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


"If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or the tools to write." Here is Stephen King's master class on his craft. On Writing begins with a mesmerizing account of King's childhood and his early focus on writing to tell a story. A series of vivid memories from adolescence, college, and the struggling years that led up to his first novel, Carrie, offer a fresh and often funny perspective on the formation of a writer. King then turns to the tools of his trade, examining crucial aspects of the wriiter's art and life, offering practical and inspiring advice on everything from plot and character development to work habits and rejection. King was in the middle of writing this book when he was nearly killed in a widely reported accident. On Writing culminates with a profoundly moving account of how his need to write spurred him toward recovery, and brought him back to his life.



  • King is hands down the best storyteller of our time. He really showcases his skill by doing something that must be extremely challenging for a fiction writer: sharing his own true story in a way that captivates the reader. Choosing King's own voice for the narration was a brilliant decision, as it creates a unique unity between the book and the reading. It feels like I truly got to know the man, just like I knew my favorite teacher back in high school. Not only did he give me a glimpse into his real life, but he also drew me into the subject matter, which in this case is the art of writing. Whether you already consider yourself a writer, aspire to become one, or even if you normally dislike writing, this book is a must-listen. You won't be let down.
  • This book is a breeze to read, blending elements of a personal memoir with a practical guide for writers. It offers authentic insights from an author who truly grasps the desires of readers. By the time you reach the end, you'll have gained a deeper understanding of the reasons behind our love for reading and our compulsion to write.
