Stephen King, a famed novelist and the brainchild behind many writings in his time is well respected for the work he did. His memoir on writing includes the article “Reading to write”, in which he gives his advice to all writers aspiring to become respected authors. After reading his article, it goes without saying that King is addressing the budding writers in a bid to give them the surest way of becoming highly proficient in what they do – at least from his own experience as a writer. King strongly advocates for a reading culture and clearly explains why he believes that reading is the best way to learn how to write, and write well. First and foremost, King is quite forthright about reading and practice of the art as the indispensable tools for any person who wants their writings to earn some respect. In his book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, King states “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: Read a lot and write a lot. There’s no two way about these two.” Expounding on this, he insists that reading in itself should not be taken as a bothersome or monotonous task but as a means for finding enjoyment and acquiring lessons as a writer that are unlikely to be learnt in any other way (if not impossible in the first place).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
