The Day I Met Stephen King
“Then things got really weird. At first I had dreams about Stephen King stories I’d read. His characters haunted me. Some just came to chat, others liked to take me on little field trips to their realities. These were more frightening, more intense, and became more common. Eventually their stories started spinning out in other directions, places I could never have come up with on my own in a million years. I was a great consumer of books, but, as I said, I’m no writer. When it comes to creativity I’m as useful as a brick is to a butterfly. I have an imagination, I just need someone else to drive it.”
