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.

When you start writing articles, you get advice from all sides. But there’s advice you don’t want to hear. It’s advice that goes against the grain. And yet, it’s this advice that forms the hallmark of great writing. So how do you get from average to great? You take the road less-taken. It’s harder and yet far more satisfying. Here’s advice you probably don’t want to hear.

Because a couple of people requested me to do this video here it is: My experience with the Cambridge English Proficiency Certificate (CPE) exam which tests for level C2 in English, aka native speaker level. I share my own results as well as some thoughts I have on standardized testing in general and on this exam in particular. I also try to give a few tips as to where to find study materials and what the tricky parts of the exam are. If you have anything to add or any further questions, please leave it in the comments! xx
