    As a writer my self...I study techniques in writing...
    And even though "The Dark Tower"-series do have an end...( an and..truely?)
    There are others who does continue..Not with the same (never copy a story), but maybe in the same style. As I do.
    I am writing on a novel that is bound to another, though it is not that clear ( a bit clear though), book I am also writing. Though...This story..CAME to me. I just had to write it down.
    Btw..The dark Tower-series... Have insprired me extremely much in my writing. As Mr King in all his writing. Hopefully he will one day read one of my books. I think he would like them. They are full off terror and agony. And some hope. Some love. But mostly....FEAR. And terror. Yes. Endless terror.

    Writing styles are like fingerprints. They might vaguely look alike from a distance, but once you examine them close up, they each have their own unique whorls and patterns. I love meeting and conversing with fellow budding writers, so welcome to the boards! I hope to hear more from you in the future! :byebye:

    Sounds like just my kind of thing! Welcome, Elfa, and the best of luck with your writing!

    This is absolutely true, in my opinion. If fear and despair and terror are what come out whenever you write, then just you carry on writing fear and despair and terror! :)

    ......And if you find similarity with other writers you know, like in a writer's room, collaboration partners are the people who share your vision for creativity. If two people or more work on an archaeology dig, one of them might find a statue, or fossil, or something that the other/s might miss .... Then when they put all the results together, they are able to arrive at a shared conclusion fit for publication in scientific journals ....

    Don't give up. There are some good ones. I had to push through a few spots that were a little long in the books, but keep going, it's worth it.

    I have read the Dark Tower volumes several times. It is the best story I've read over half a century, but The Gunslinger, Volume I, does not seem part of the story for me. The story doesn't begin for me until the drawing of the prisoner, Eddie Dean. Has anyone else had a similar thought?
