Writing tips from Jean Craighead George

When I was writing my review for My Side of the Mountain (you’ll see it soon), I came across Jean Craighead George’s website.

The author’s website is still maintained, even since her death in 2012, and contains a tab along the top titled “On Writing.” It’s written more for children, I think, but still was fun to read. She gives some tips on writing (calling them “writing prods,”) and advises not to spend too much time thinking about the ending. The ending, she says, will write itself and often in a way that will be a surprise to you.

I enjoyed reading this page on writing, learning about the process of such an experienced author (she wrote more than 100 books!!) – hope you enjoy it as well.
