“Just remember that Dumbo didn’t need the feather; the magic was in him.” ~ Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

What a year of SK goodness it has been!

At the beginning of 2019 I spent a bit of time with a dog named Cujo and I’m about to dig into The Stand, one of the many novels I should have read as an adolescent. At 1300 pages plus it will probably take me the rest of the year to finish but that’s just the price you pay to dwell in King’s world – and there’s nowhere I’d rather be.

As for cinematic outings, Pet Sematary didn’t exactly set my world alight but It Chapter 2 more than made up for it. I’ve seen it twice and could still go back for more. AND we still have The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep to look forward to before the year is out. It’s a good time to be a King fan, though truly when isn’t it?

Happy birthday to you, Mr King. Thanks for all the horror, the nightmares and the magic. And thank you for being such a big part of my life – then, now and always.

What’s your favourite Stephen King book/film/quote? 🎈


    1. I think I must agree with you about IT the book, it’s magnificent and it captures the essence of friendship so perfectly. I think so many of us see ourselves in The Losers, I know I do. When I read it I can remember the feeling of being that age, smell the summer, etc. It’s beautiful. I also adore Carrie, Misery and The Shining – all mighty bangers.

      I just remembered I still owe you Cujo so that will coming your way at some point, I’m so sorry. I am not an organised person!

      Gotta love the master 😍 xoxo
