    Was King in “dire financial straits” when he wrote The Shining? I thought Carrie had been a big success.

    Despite the success of his previous novels the comment about his financial situation is in reference to Jack Torrance as a cathartic vehicle; perhaps King wasn’t in “dire financial straits” writing The Shining. But, his character, Jack Torrance is a reflection of King’s life and experiences at the time.
    Not that I know for experience, but you might have overestimated how much money writers make….
    Thanks for watching!
