Like Neil Gaiman? Like Stephen King?
Neil interviewed Mr. King for THE LONDON SUNDAY TIMES.
Here is a fascinating tidbit he wrote on Mr. King:
“I think the most important thing I learned from Stephen King I learned as a teenager,
reading King's book of essays on horror and on writing, Danse Macabre.
In there he points out that if you just write a page a day, just 300 words,
at the end of a year you'd have a novel.
It was immensely reassuring -
suddenly something huge and impossible became strangely easy.
As an adult, it's how I've written books I haven't had the time to write, like my children's novel Coraline.”
