Carrie was written on Stephen King’s wife Tabitha’s portable typewriter while the couple and their then two children were living in a trailer. It started life as a short story intended for Cavalier magazine, but King threw out the first three pages.

Fortunately, his wife noticed the pages in the trash and fished them out, advising her husband to go on and finish the tale . . . but he went one step better: he expanded it into a novel.

“I persisted because I was dry and had no better ideas . . . my considered opinion was that I had written the world’s all-time loser.”
