I continue the walk back to my building through Binghamton University’s beautifully maintained campus. I begin to take a deep breath but then I hold it in because I see…

    A book that strongly influenced me would be On Writing by Stephen King. Truthfully speaking, I initially picked up the book because of its title. I hated reading because it was always a requirement and rarely for leisure. I intended that by reading this book, it would improve my writing techniques. But, I was shaken by how much I enjoyed the book and the art of memoirs. I was awakened from my wrongful interpretations on reading and the craft of writing. I did not dislike reading, but it was the…
