Matthew,

You’re spot on. When I Wrote fiction back in the day, it was King that taught me the most about the craft. Both directly (through On Writing and essays) and indirectly through the force of his stories.

I really appreciate the points you make about how he teaches his audience how to be better readers and trusts them to do the work. That’s a powerful lesson for writers of all genres.

Great piece!
