Dear Stephen King,

I am writing as part of our school's Seeking Stephen King project.  If I ever had the opportunity to meet you, I would be full of questions to ask.  The one that sticks out the most is where you get your inspiration from.  I've heard many second-hand accounts, but it would be great if I could hear from the author himself.  From my understanding, you have had a tough past, but you have written several novels and short stories, so there must be some other source you are getting your ideas from.  It appears as if you have a wonderful imagination and lots of messages to get across.  I have always wondered what goes through your head when you are in the middle of an intense story.  I would like you to know I appreciate your talent for writing, and I recognize it takes a lot of effort to be constantly coming up with new ideas.  I encourage you to continue writing, and maybe someday I will get the chance to ask you these questions in person.

Dear Stephen King,

I would highly enjoy if you came to Sussex Regional High School.  If you came you wouldn't even have to pay for your own lighting crew.  I would be willing to do the lights right here in the school if you decided to come.  My friends and I would not mind doing the lights for you plus we just got new lights and everything last year.  We redid the whole theatre and new equipment. 

I hope to see you soon,

Dear Mr. King,

Now is the time!  We students have been badgering you for almost a year now to come visit our humble school in Sussex, New Brunswick.  You must have seen hundreds of letters by now.  If you are flattered, than come to our school and you will enjoy ten times the flattery.  On the other hand, if you are incredibly annoyed, than I say just come pay a small visit anyways and the letters will likely stop (emphasis on the likely).

Either way, we would most definitedly appreciate it if you stopped by, even for a short while.  Come enjoy the beautiful scenery and the fresh air, and show us that you care about young students interested in your work.  See you soon!

Impatient SRHS Student.

Dear Mr. S. King,

It has come to my attention that a lot of your books take place in a small town: well I have just the place for you.  My suggestion would be my very own town Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada.  I suggest this town because of the potential for a horror book or even a movie in which Sussex passes, to begin Susses is at a very critical stage in its growth.  the stage is Sussex potentially becoming a city; I myself disagree with the idea, and there lays the opportunity for a novel.  The plot could consist of the twon's people rebelling against the business, to look at it from a different angle "the corporate" or the business owners that are planning to expand the town could have a secret task force that coule "take care" of the rebels/

There is tonnes of novels to be squeezed from this town and what better opportunity to do the research the town then coming to visit us at Sussex Regional High School. 

In conclusion Sussex is ripe with opportunity for a novel, I hope that you scrounge an idea from our town and that we get to meet you in person soemtimes through out the school semester.

Mr. King,

This past week in school, I have learned a lot about you and what you have done in the world of literature.  I have never read a single book of yours; however I am very interested in reading them from the positive reviews from many people.  Anyways, I would like to ask you a few questions that involve you as a writer now, in the past and your thoughts about this community.  Now, without further ado, here are my questions to you Mr. King.

First of all, are you thinking of or working on some sort of future project or novel in literature?  I ask this because I understand that you have written around 50 novels and I would like to know if I could look forward to anything new with you in the future.

Second, with being the best-selling horror author in history and one of the greatest authors of all-time, do you have any regrets publishing books of your caliber of creepiness? The reason I ask this is because with the people that happens to be insane or may have tried to reenact the unimaginable events you put in your stories.

My last questions i would like to ask is are you interested in visiting the town of Sussex, and more specifically Sussex Regional High School.  You see, the reason I ask this is because our school has been wanting you to come down for quite some time.  In my opinion, I believe you would be a wonderful influence and inspiration to us and perhaps we could return the favour to you.

Mr. King, I hope you will get the chance to read my questions, and possibly answer them.  I hope that our school will influence you to come to Sussex for a visit.  I look forward to encountering you in the future.

Dear Stephen King,

You haven't written a book in a while and visiting Sussex might give you the next great book or movie.  There are so many things in this tiny town that you could write about.  You could write about the Abby, an old castle house in the woods with an old man that frightens children that trespass on his land.  You could write about the animals at Animal-Land that has been closed for years but is rumored that the animals come to life at night.  Sussex is famous for the bluff, a cliff that is a popular spot for family hiking that drops off quickly.  There are a lot of graveyards around Sussex that at night are scary as hell; there is one in particular, on Newline Road that the road goes right through the graveyard.  There are hundreds of tomb stones on each side of the road all lit up with lights and at night you would swear that people are walking in front of the lights.  We also have a potash mine here that travels underground for miles.  I really think that you could come up with some really good stories when you visit our tiny town.  I really hope you can come to Sussex, and visit our school.  A lot of people wish you would come.

Dear Stephen King,

 I am writing you this letter to ask you a question about your books and what drives you to write these crazy novels?  I am a huge fan of yours.  I didn't know about your books till I entered high school this year.  We started talking about it in my English class and ever since then I became very interested in your books.  As a reader I do enjoy reading scary novels because they are intense and suspenseful.  I wanted to ask you a couple questions.  Where do your ideas come from? I think it is amazing how you can come up with these extraordinary ideas from the real life to a crazy insane story.  Hopefully someday soon you will be able to answer my questions at our school.  I believe you are a great inspiration to others became of how well you write and dedication as an author.  I strongly encourage you to come to Sussex Regional High School because we would love for you to come and answer our questions about how to become a better writer.

Yours truly,
