I had seen a post on Facebook that Stephen King was going to be in Kansas City. The appearance was sponsored by an independent bookstore called Rainy Day Books. I wanted to go. For whatever reason though I hesitated.
Folks, carpe diem. Every time. Because if you don’t seize the day, you’ll miss the day.
I’d given up until Beth said a few of the friends and family she’d thought would want to go bailed out on her.
I said yes, immediately. Even though it was three hours away. And after dark in KC. On a weeknight.
Getting to eat at the Cheesecake Factory was an incentive as well.
The man is a writing legend. And not getting any younger.
It was so worth the trip.
Stephen King is such an inspiring guy, both as a writer and as a human being. His book On Writing is one of the pivotal books that pushed me to make the plunge into writing.
Talk about a guy who’s spent a lifetime seizing the day.
