Writing the Unhappy Childhood

December 2, 2011

A gift to many of us, certainly to me, from a prolific author of books for children:

“They say to be a writer you must first have an unhappy childhood. I don’t know if unhappiness is necessary, but I think maybe some children who have suffered a loss too great for words grow up into writers who are always trying to find those words, trying to find a meaning for the way they have lived.”

—Cynthia Rylant, But I’ll Be Back Again

  1. This should be sharing with Twitter (I hope!), but I’m afraid I have yet to spend any time with Google+. Perhaps my first 2012 resolution! 🙂

    • WordPress has Twitter and Google + buttons (and others) you can drop and drag into your share options under each post. I was thinking they would be there for your readers to use to make it super easy to put your posts on social media sites.
