Just Do It

Author Stephen King tells a great story about a chance to meet his idol, science fiction writer Isaac Asimov. The teenaged King hitchhiked to a college in Maine and talked his way into a reception honoring Asimov. Summoning his courage, he walked up to the legendary author and introduced himself.

“Mr. Asimov, you’ve always been a hero of mine and I’ve always wanted to write,” King said.

Asimov looked at the young man with disdain.
