I am new.
I am genuinely a different, better version of myself coming out of this. I am so sad and still drying my eyes about it ending but also incredibly grateful for what this has done for me. Thank you. Thank you to my now lifelong friends. Your email address will not be published. Here is the description of the book: Stargirl. I've been a Disney fan since I was a kid and this interest has grown over the years. I've visited Disney Parks around the globe and have a vast collection of Disney themed collectibles, which is why I also run DisKingdom.

I wish I were more outrageous, less predictable, more unrealistic. I understand that the story carries a whiff of fantasy, of the tall tale. The story, and in particular the character, are intended to raise dust in the corners of credibility, to challenge our routine ways of seeing ourselves. When Archie says to Leo, "She is us more than we are us," he refers to both her essential humanity and to our own often unrealized potential.
Leo himself almost accuses her of being too good to be true, then later notes, "That was no saint kissing me.

I guess it was largely a matter of timing. I was sixteen.
My dream of becoming a Major League baseball player was fading. The imperative to find my course in life was upon me. I was shopping around for who I wanted to be. And here this writing thing seemed to reach down and pluck me out of the crowd. Nobody assigned me to write a poem after the game.
All this pretty much just happened to me.

Q: What do you consider the most rewarding part of writing books for young people? A: Feedback from readers. The most common kind, of course, is fan mail. Some of the most heartwarming reports I get are from teachers and librarians who I meet personally at conferences and book signings. I remember a letter from a teacher in Georgia. She told me the kids in her class had a choice one day: they could go eat lunch, or they could continue to listen to my book. Every one stayed for the book. Q: Do you ever use suggestions from readers in new books?

Q: How did you start writing Stargirl? What parts of the story came together first? A: I have notes going all the way back to for the book that ultimately became Stargirl. At first it was going to be about a boy. It went through many titles, including Moonshadow and Under the Bomb. Many things I read over the years influenced the story, notably the play Ondine by Giraudoux. In its final form the story finds its most specific inspiration in my wife Eileen, some of whose good deeds and such I happily confiscated. Q: What advice do you have for young writers?
