Breaking into writing?

Was just wondering, does anyone here know how you start breaking into writing?

Stphen king wrote a book that had a chapter or two about it.
It was acutally pretty interesting & w/some good advice "On writing : a memoir of the craft " It might be a good starting point. (support your local library, they probab have a copy)
luck

Right now I've got a few pages of high fantasy written down. Summersong has been gracious enough to grant me a few pointers here and there on details, breaking out the thesaurus (my characters "dance" a lot heh), and generally being a fantastic editor for my lowly talent. I owe her much. :D
