1.     What is King's view when it comes to theme? Why does he think theme is important in

writing? When does he say it isn't important? What have you been taught about theme by English instructors?

2.     What does King say about the adage, "write what you know". 

3.     When King discusses the role of research in his book, he states, "The tale I have to tell in Buick Eight has to do with monsters and secrets. It is not a story about police procedure in Western Pennsylvania." How does this quotation reflect his thoughts about research?

4.     King dedicates one of the last chapters in the book to the accident he was in. What happened in this accident? Why do you think he included this event in his book about writing?

5.     Take a look at the editing he illustrates from pages 271-282. What seems to drive these editing changes? Do you agree with the changes he makes? Why or why not?
