Neil Gaiman Interviews Stephen King
“They pay me absurd amounts of money,” he observes, “for something that I would do for free.”
Neil Gaiman interviewed Stephen King for the UK Sunday Times Magazine, and reposted the raw version on his blog. He reminisces about how King influenced his own writing career:
I think the most important thing I learned from Stephen King I learned as a teenager, reading King’s book of essays on horror and on writing, Danse Macabre. In there he points out that if you just write a page a day, just 300 words, at the end of a year you’d have a novel. It was immensely reassuring – suddenly something huge and impossible became strangely easy. As an adult, it’s how I’ve written books I haven’t had the time to write, like my children’s novel Coraline.
