There aren't many horror writers that haven't admitted to an overt fixation or possibly an obsession with the man below. Stephen King has virtually inspired most of this new generation of horror authors. (Myself included...). Every now and again, I'll watch his video tips when I'm feeling particularly unworthy of putting words to the page. Most creatives are self deprecating. I'm not the exception. I talk myself out of quitting everyday...or more often than not Uncle Steve will give me a pep talk via these videos. Maybe this will help motivate you out of your dark place.
