Added DiffLines:

* RevolversAreJustBetter: Many of King's characters are fond of revolvers. For example, Jake takes one up in ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' as his WeaponOfChoice, as [[RevolversAreForAmateurs he finds it simple to use while being effective]]. Of course, [[TheGunslinger Roland's]] [[Franchise/TheDarkTower use of revolvers]] is practically the TropeCodifier in King's work.


Added DiffLines:

** The use of silver bullets is averted and lampshaded in ''Literature/TheTalisman''. Wolf dies from gunshot wounds and it's noted that the myths about needing silver bullets to kill werewolves is false and regular bullets will do just fine.

Added DiffLines:

* Determinator: When it comes to his commitment to writing. His output is prodigious because he views writing as his job, he works at it every day, and rarely if ever takes a day off from writing. King is on record as stating that any writer who can't put out at least one book a year is spending too much time fucking around.

* StagingAnIntervention: At the height of King's addiction issues, his family and friends raided his office, gathered up all the drugs, cigarette butts, and beer cans they could find, and dumped them at King's feet to try to shock him into sobering up. It worked; King went into rehad and has remained clean and sober ever since.

* ''Literature/PetSematary'' -- Sometimes the dead walk. Sometimes, [[CameBackWrong dead is better]]. Made into a movie with the screenplay written by King and a kick-ass theme song by Music/TheRamones, personally commissioned by King.

Made into a movie with the screenplay written by King and a kick-ass theme song by Music/TheRamones, personally commissioned by King. Especially notable for being the one thing he's ever written that truly horrified ''himself'', to the point that he sat on it for a year, assuming his publisher would never print it.

* ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'' - ScrapbookStory about [[ButtMonkey an abused girl]] with PsychicPowers who takes a terrible revenge at the prom. King's wife stopped him from throwing the manuscript out and convinced him to finish it. Made into a movie by Creator/BrianDePalma that received two Academy Award nominations (for acting), which later received [[Film/TheRageCarrie2 a sequel]] and a [[MadeForTVMovie made-for-TV]] [[TheRemake remake]]. It was also made into an infamously terrible musical that has become a byword for "flopped on Broadway", though a 2011/12 revival did modestly well and even produced a cast album.

** This really comes to light in ''Literature/TheGreenMile'', where an aged Paul Edgcomb writes the first few chapters as though Coffey ''did'' murder those girls, despite the main plot point in the last half being the fact that he's actually innocent. He wrote the novel [[SerialNovel in installments]], and admitted in the foreword of the first book that he himself may not even know how this thing ends.

The resolution to the subplot with Mr. Jingles the mouse was added at the last minute when his wife asked what happened to him; King himself had completely forgotten he'd written a seemingly immortal mouse into the story.
