1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    As much as I enjoyed The Danse Macabre, On Writing is my favorite non-fiction work by King. It's not only a master tutorial of the craft, it's also a lovely visit with Uncle Stevie. He writes nonfiction with the same ease to the reader as he does his fiction. It's just a pure delight to pick this book up.

    It was like a long one-on-one conversation with Mr. King.

    I've read On Writing twice and enjoyed it both times. However, Danse Macabre is my favorite. Probably because it's so nostalgic.

    I love On Writing. Very personable, and from a 12 step standpoint (both my parents were in A.A.) very real. I like that he didn't make any excuses about his problems or his writing.
