Creative writing lessons: Creative Writing tips, advice and lessons from bestseller Stephen King

Join my latest Udemy course for less than half price! https://www.udemy.com/novel-bootcamp-imagine-plan-and-start-writing-that-book/?couponCode=YOUTUBE_29

This video is a montage of advice, tips and lessons from Stephen King, one of my favourite writers. He’s a bestselling author and a true talent in horror, and more recently, crime, science fiction and literary fiction.

Stephen King talks here about character, plot, notebooks, ideas, process and all sorts of things. He gives some brilliant advice that is perhaps slightly different to what you might hear elsewhere.

I put this together to help people with their creative writing, to inspire different ways of planning, development. drafting and editing. Also for inspiration and to give us all something to aspire to. This is perfect for beginners to creative writing, those looking for help via lessons or lectures.

So sit back and listen to the wonderful, refreshing and amazing Stephen King.

Thanks for watching. If you’re interested in learning more about creative writing and short stories, follow this link to a special offer on my current Udemy course. https://www.udemy.com/short-story-workshop-learn-from-a-prizewinning-writer/?couponCode=YouTube_Half

When I’m on book tours, the question I get asked the most is “how do you write a first novel?” In this video, I tell you how I did it. Anyone can write a novel. Didn’t go to college to learn literature, etc? Doesn’t matter. Your idea is just as valid as anyone else’s.
