King tells the reader on page 157 “Don’t wait for the muse. As I’ve said, he’s a hardheaded guy who’s not susceptible to a lot of creative fluttering.” I really enjoyed this particular advice from King. I was glad to see that he doesn’t wait for creativity to hit him. He works until it does. It’s similar to waiting for a door to open for you when you could easily open it for yourself. I like that he is realistic when it comes to his writing.
