The Writing Tools of 20 Famous Authors

Stephen King

Stephen King once described his Waterman fountain pen as “the world’s finest word processor.” He started writing longhand when sitting at a computer became too painful (post car accident). He found the act of using a fountain pen forced him to slow down and think about each word. King discusses this method in the above 10-minute interview from 2001, which was recorded during his press rounds for Dreamcatcher.
