Random thoughts on writing

Author Jane Yolen, author of many children’s books and recipient of many awards for her works, has written an article called “Random thoughts on writing and on children’s books.”

In this article she writes about many aspects of writing and the writer’s life, including

  • how she goes about her writing
  • dealing with rejections
  • musing on the muse
  • works in progress
  • writing with joy
  • about voice
  • being prepared for serendipity
  • children and stories
  • revising your writing
  • getting published

“Now, I am one of those people who makes a distinction between being a writer and being an author. A writer puts words on a page. An author lives in story. A writer is conversant with the keyboard, the author with character.” Jane Yolen
