Thirty five years ago, a wife pulled four pages out of the trash, and thus began the literary career of Stephen King. I remember reading Tommyknockers one day when I was home sick from school and feeling really creepy. I have not read all that he wrote and have liked some while others I struggled to finish others. His book, On Writing, helped me tremendously as I consider writing my first book. There is something to be said about the way he spins a story.
To think it all started by someone believing in him enough take a look at something he had discarded. Inspiring.
What moments in your life was there someone that believed in you, that helped you get where you are today?
