    Stephen King churns out two or mediocre books a year and endorses anything and everything with his name on it - not matter how much it sucks.

    Simple. Just write the same book over and over again with minor changes here and there.

    For someone who is trying to be a writer, you look at these guys and wonder how they make it so easy? I'm turning my screenplay into a novel now and I'm playing a different ball game.

    I think I read somewhere he has a cottage where he goes to write with no internet or distractions.

    Stephen King writes like it’s his job....because it IS his job! George RR Martin isn’t writing like an author cause he’s NOT! It should only take 1 year to get a book out and he has published trilogy books 1 every 5 damn years!!! He’s a lazy, money hungry liar.

    Michael Crichton wrote 10000 words a day. In 1995 he had a nr 1 movie (Congo), book (The Last World) and television series (E.R.) in America. He did it again in 1996 with Twister , Airframe (book) and E.R. Some people are just driven to get it DONE.

    Basically, just write everyday. Write when you don't want to write. _Especially_ when you don't want to write. That voice in your head is your greatest enemy. Ignore it, and you will win.
    Do short stories to not only get a more concise experience in story structure but it's also a remarkable way of keeping momentum. Creativity is a muscle that needs to be exercised like any other.
    And finally, have a good reason for doing it. Do it for _you,_ no one else. Don't think about your potential successes. Don't worry about whether or not it's good. Just have fun with it. Stephen King could have retired decades ago but continues onward because he truly enjoys it. And it shows: he's quite arguably in his prime.
    Cool, thank you for reading my dumb bullshit. Now write, you procrastinating fuck.

    GRRM is a human who is a writer. King is a writer who happens to be human.

    Stephen King's writing is rather dry, innit? Better suited for movie scripts, but eh.. the prose isn't my style. Story's great though.

    For anybody interested on understanding a bit more in depth how the f$ck does Mr. King writes so fast, I would highly recommend you to read his book On Writing. It's a terrific book in my opinion, and what one can learn from it is not necessarily only for writing. You can probably learn quite a lot even if you want to be something other than a writer, especially in the first section of the book.

    I've hit five, eight, even ten pages in a day before. Of course, those days are a tiny drop in the bucket compared to all the days I've lost barely writing or not writing at all, but holy shit, this is actually doable. If I can just be consistent, six pages a day really isn't too bad. I was expecting him to say twelve or something.

    Now if only I had a fraction of Stephen King's talent...

    6 pages in 3-4 hours can mean anywhere from 1.5k words to 3k words. It all depends on the size of the physical book. The bigger the book, the more words are needed to fill a page, which is usually between 250 to 400 words. That said, holy moly!

    If they both were my grandfathers, then by golly I would feel like the luckiest person in the world. I mean, who wouldn't? Not for only their writting, but mostly to just listen to them talk like about anything. To be there just for King's cussing and F'd up stories that he got motivation from. And George's "starting the car" laugh.😂😂😂😂

    King is not only passionate, he is very disciplined. Very routine. He treats writing as his job. I think that’s why he’s able to do it.

    I would be very pleased to have The Winds of Winter come out, but I don't want it in any kind of hurry. Back in 2011 when the fifth book arrived -- five and a half years after the fourth -- I assumed the sixth book would take maybe that long, but after six years don't hold your breath. We simply don't have book six, and we won't ..... until we do have it for real.

    I love king, but he could never create a world so complex and vast as ASOIAF.... George has to check everything he has already written to be able to keep writing. And with every book he has more to keep up with be next time

    Having real an original ideas probably helps. GRRM only takes random historical sources, changes the names, twists them up in other random events and ads magic and his clueless concept of dragons and calls it a decade.

    Not to take anything away from Stephen King, but GRRM is writing a very complex and intricate political fantasy with MANY character arcs and schemes. It's not easy and I don't expect it to be written fast.

    However... I WANT THE NEXT BOOK!!!
