9781491000557: Views from a Window Seat: Thoughts on Writing and Life

Every writer needs inspiration, whether composing fiction, poetry, or fact-based work for an audience of children or adults. Both inspiration and company, Views from a Window Seat: Thoughts on Writing and Life poses and answers questions such as: How do we decide the best way to begin a book? How do we keep up our momentum during the long middle? What are some ways to know we’ve reached an ending? How do we tell the truth?

About the Author:

Jeannine Atkins is the author of eleven books for young readers, including Girls Who Looked Under Rocks: The Lives of Six Pioneering Naturalists and Borrowed Names: Poems about Laura Ingalls Wilder, Madam C. J. Walker, Marie Curie and Their Daughters. She teaches creative writing at Simmons College and Children’s Literature at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.

Review:

A sparkling look at how children's book author and poet Atkins (Mary Anning and the Sea Dragon, 2012, etc.) writes and lives. ... She offers lessons she has drawn from nearby flora and fauna, as viewed from her writerly perch at her Massachusetts home or from the locations of several re-energizing trips she takes throughout the book. Every writer's situation is unique, and each needs to find his or her own path, but this admirable journey through a veteran author's process provides instructions that should prove valuable to most.
-- Kirkus Reviews
