Turn Not Pale, Beloved Snail; A Book about Writing among Other Things.

Dust jacket notes: "Some people think of writers as those who spend their lives huddled in a garret scribbling away and never experiencing real life. Jacqueline Jackson, noted author of many books, says that anyone, child or adult, who wants to write meaningfully and well cannot afford to hide away from life. Indeed, she suggests that it is only by opening up all our senses to the myriad aspects of life around us that our writing can become rich and colorful. Using examples from the work of writers, giving insights into her own methods of writing, and inviting the reader to share many of her own family's feelings and experiences, Mrs. Jackson echoes the lines of Lewis Carroll's 'The Lobster-Quadrille': 'Turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance.' The dance is life; the writing is about it. Jacqueline Jackson gives us all a very special invitation to join in."
