First Blog Mistake - Of Which I'm Aware

Time for some embarassment: Stephen King's book on writing is actually titled "On Writing - A Memoir of the Craft" and should properly be briefly referred to as "On Writing".

My excuse is that in the manner of books sold today the cover bears the well-known writer's name in huge font size "STEPHEN KING" then, in this case, there is clever kind of sideways script font saying "On Writing" followed by "A Memoir of the Craft" in a standard font. The book spine seems to be the deciding factor in determining the short version of the title and it states, "On Writing."

All of which is just an excuse, and there should be none for a factual error, my bad.
