In 1973, Stephen King was penniless trying to support a family in a doublewide trailer. His wife worked second shift at the local Dunkin Donuts and King taught English at a private school. When he was offered an opportunity to be an advisor - a position that would have given the family a $300 raise - his wife asked if it would leave him time to write. When King said, “No, not much,” she urged him not to take the job. After writing three novels that got nothing but rejection letters, he put the first draft of his fourth novel Carrie in the trashcan. Luckily for us, his wife Tabby pulled it out. A few months later, he received a telegram from an editor at Doubleday that read, “Congratulations. Carrie officially a Doubleday book. Is $2,500 advance ok? The future lies ahead. Love, Bill.” Stephen King is now the 19th best-selling author of all time. Thank you Tabby King.
