Imagine trying to be a writer if your dad is Stephen King

Hell, imagine even trying to sleep at night. I think Joe Hill has done well, considering.

Most sons fall into one of two groups.

There’s the boy who looks upon his father and thinks, I hate that son of a bitch, and I swear to God I’m never going to be anything like him. Then there’s the boy who aspires to be like his father: to be as free, and as kind, and as comfortable in his own skin. A kid like that isn’t afraid he’s going to resemble his dad in word and action. He’s afraid he won’t measure up.
