We’re always curious about what best-selling author and Bangor resident Stephen King is doing. To find out, the BDN (Bangor Daily News) emailed him five questions Thursday morning. Sixteen minutes later, we had his answers.

1. What are you working on today?

“Just thinking about a new story. That’s always the first step.”

2. What keeps you awake at night?

“Nothing, currently.”

3. Are you a glass half empty or half full person?

“Three quarters full. I like to relish the good stuff and take care of the bad stuff as best I can. Or let it go, if I can’t. Most of my worries look silly a month later.”

4.What is it about Bangor that keeps you here, at least some of the time?

“I love the neighborhood, and seeing people I know at the Corner Store, the Fairmount, the baseball field, and downtown. Not to mention strawberry pancakes at Nicky’s Cruisin’ Diner.”

5. If you could have a 5-minute conversation with anyone living or dead, who would it be?

“I’d talk to Lee Harvey Oswald (but I’d keep him at a distance, and make sure he was unarmed). It wouldn’t take five minutes, just a four-word question: ‘Did you do it?’”
