I remember the first time I’ve heard of a man called Stephen King. We had ‘IT’ at home and as an attempt to conquer my fear, I tried to read it. I was 6 or 7 years old and the book was huge. I never finished, I couldn’t understand it, later it ended in a box with a bunch of other books for sale :( Needless to say that the movie (the first one) is a reminder of the closest I’ve ever been from a heart and panic attack.
To this day I still find a little hard to understand some of his stories, but what I like about him are the inspiring things he says to help and encourage those who want to do what he does: share the stories in their head. I don’t think you have to know 100% about a person (or their work) to like him or her.
Mr. King inspires me more than any other people I know in person, and I’m grateful for writers like him. 🍀
