Be fascinated by a exploring a legendary haunted city with a Historical Ghost Tour. You always hide what you're confessing to. That's one of the reasons why you make up the story. When I wrote The Shining , for instance, the protagonist of The Shining is a man who has broken his son's arm, who has a history of child beating, who is beaten himself. And as a young father with two children, I was horrified by my occasional feelings of real antagonism toward my children.
Won't you ever stop? Won't you ever go to bed?
And time has given me the idea that probably there are a lot of young fathers and young mothers both who feel very angry, who have angry feelings toward their children. But as somebody who has been raised with the idea that father knows best and Ward Cleaver on ' Leave It To Beaver ,' and all this stuff, I would think to myself, Oh, if he doesn't shut up, if he doesn't shut up So when I wrote this book I wrote a lot of that down and tried to get it out of my system, but it was also a confession.

Bill Thompson, King's editor at Doubleday, tried to talk him out of The Shining because he thought that after writing Carrie and Salem's Lot , he would get "typed" as a horror writer. King considered that a compliment. Originally, there was a prologue titled "Before the Play" that chronicled earlier events in the Overlook's history, as well as an epilogue titled "After the Play", though neither remained part of the published novel.
The epilogue was thought to have been lost, but was re-discovered in as part of an early manuscript version of the novel.

On November 19, , during a reading at the Canon Theatre in Toronto , King described to the audience an idea for a sequel to The Shining. The idea was prompted by the occasional person asking, "Whatever happened to Danny? I mentioned two potential projects while I was on the road, one a new Mid-World book not directly about Roland Deschain, but yes, he and his friend Cuthbert are in it, hunting a skin-man, which are what werewolves are called in that lost kingdom and a sequel to The Shining called Doctor Sleep.
