My Idol

Nobody can tell a story like my idol, Stephen King. He is a true master of the craft and the way he tells a story once you start reading you just can't put it down. I have been a huge fan of Stephen's for more than Thirty years now, quite a long time, but I was only Ten years old when I first heard of Stephen King thanks to a certain movie called 'Salem's Lot, and once I read the actual novel I was hooked and I have been a loyal follower ever since. The way he weaves the tale is amazing, just how mere words can create such emotions and spine tingling fear always fascinated me, but with Stephen it comes as natural to him as breathing. I've always asked myself what would it be like if you could live in Stephen King's mind just for one day? What wonders and terrors would you find, because there is no end to this man's imagination, he is like a fountain of words and the way he uses those words is nothing short of astounding. I don't think there is one writer out there that hasn't been inspired by this man, his loyal fans are in the millions and rightly so, he truly deserves the recognition for the wonderful tales of horror he has given us over the years. I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for Stephen King and will always be a fan of his writing pretty much until the day I die, he has been a part of my life for so long that I cannot imagine myself reading anything else. I am currently re-reading IT refreshing the memory before it comes to the big screens here in Ireland and I simply cannot wait, after IT I plan to read 'Salem's Lot yet again, because it's the very book that inspired me to begin my writing life many years ago, though I'm a little embarrassed to say that Stephen was my inspiration because compared to him, my writing seems like the scrawlings of a four year old, but the more you write then the better you will get (eventually) just like anything else in life, practice makes perfect. If I only had a smidgen, or just a micron of the talent that Stephen King possesses, I would consider myself blessed. Stephen King is my all time hero and I along with countless others Idolize and respect him. If you don't like Stephen King then you ain't worth talking to :-)
