Happy birthday Stephen King!

Me - minutes before meeting SK
(two days after his 64th birthday)
“The writer must have a good imagination to begin with, but the imagination has to be muscular, which means it must be exercised in a disciplined way, day in and day out, by writing, failing, succeeding and revising.” - Stephen King

Today, Stephen King turns 65. And, he's still writing! An inspiration to me, he has overcome many obstacles to become the well-known author he is today. Aside from his amazing stories, the work he does/has done reminds me that being in a creative industry takes a strong backbone and an acceptance of criticism as a gift. Also, that perseverance is essential when rejection becomes all too familiar.

Here's to many more years of watching a great man terrify generations.
