This guy's just great, I have never seen a writer so simple and easily relatable.
Ohh he's funny too 😉
Just to comment on what King says about movies: I feel like movies as a medium can allow for meaning that is much more concentrated. A five second cut can include 1. the thing in focus that moves the main plot. 2. things in the background to indicate hidden plots, various symbols etc... 3. Music to affect the mood. 4. Camera movement to change the way we percieve things (hitchcock is a master of this). I just feel like films can do some things better than novels.
Hi folks. Just to let you know that I've set up a creative writing group on facebook too, if you fancy joining me there you can find us here
I think King is wrong about writing last lines in some cases. Consider the movie "Memento" - it could only have been written backwards. Time for the writer of the novel is a completely different dimension than it is for the reader. Take advantage of that fact in all sorts of different ways.
At least one Stephen King novel is standard for any young writer to comprehend the meaning of modern literature and the place of horror/uncanny-ness in the world as more than genre alone and yet less than absolutely surreal. And familiarization with Ray Bradbury is standard for any sci-fi or horror student.
He's dressed like Louis CK
Absolute great man. Hard working and good writer.
This man is a God.
When he is talking about the book he bought to learn about screenplay writing, they cut out the part where he says it was bullshit until he read an actual screenplay included in the end.
Great video :D love stephen king
Thanks for this (:
What I got out of that "scary stuff is key. scary clowns + children is a great idea to get writing big!"
