PAGE 8 THE SUNDANCE TIMES JANUARY 3, 1985 ....... The writer and the young... Locad author Gaydell Collier was gifted with three reams of paper and a fountain pen last week as an expression of the Crook County School District's appreciation for her recent visit to Sundance elementary school. During the visit to the school, Collier, the author of three books, explained the writing process to the students and fielded many questions. Collier said that the paper she received from the school dis- trier was the best present they could have given her.

I was happy to be asked," she said. "I would also like to thank the staff and children for making me feel special. I still can't believe they actually wanted my autograph." Sundance second grade teacher Maxine Ripley said, "It added an overall general feeling of excite- ment over education throughout the week. 1 was impressed by the ability of the author to come into a new situation and relate to all the children at all levels," she said. "The most humorous aspect was some of the younger children were so awed by having a real, live author, they forgot to ask their questions." Maxine Wegner said she was pleased with the outcome of the project. She said Collier did an excellent job and the children's responses were exciting. "I was very happy to see her show exam- ples of her revisions. It taught the children that even profes- sionals had to make corrections on their writing." She said, "I was also pleased when she told the children about her grand- A local author ventured forth from her world of writing to enter the education halls of Moorcroft and Sundance last week to cele- brate National Children's Book and National Education Week, November 12-16, with the young. Gaydell M. Collier of FarreU, co-author along with Eleanor F. Prince of Laramie of the books-- Basic Horsemanship, English and Western and Basic Training for Horses, visited Moorcroft elementary classes November 12 and Sundance elementary grades November 13. The special edu- cation project was co-ordinated by the schools' library science tea- cher, Maxine Wegner, Sundance. The focus of the presentation was "revision" and the author shared experiences as a writer. The author stated that the children were really good. She said, "They put a lot of thought into their questions." She said some of the classes were terri- fic which she appreciated and enjoyed. "I found them inter- esting and I probably learned more than the kids did," she said. She said since the focus was on revision, she showed the child- ren a rough draft of one of her works. "It was covered with editing changes and was a mess; but, I wanted them to theoreti- cally see what is done in re- writing," she explained. Collier said some of the ques- tions asked were: !'How long did it take you to write a book?", "How do you take picXures?", "How did you think of all the words?", "How many horses do you have and what axe their names?", "How do you write?", "Do you get bored when you're half way through?", "Do you ever get annoyed?", "How do you relax when writing?", "When do you write?", "Where did you get all the paper?", and "Where do you get all the money to buy the paper?". Coller said she showed her books, her notebook of informa- tion, she explained how it took ten years to write Basic Horseman- ship, showed pictures in the book of her daughter, Jenny, who served as a model for the book throughout the ten year period, what an editor does, what a pub- lisher does and showed galley proofs and a layout page from Basic Training. She told the children she always writes her first draft with a pink fountain pen, showed the pen and explained fountain pens were rarely used today. She said she then typed the manuscript on a typewriter. When asked how her firs~ book was started she told the child- ren she was editing a book for John A. Gorman who at that time was the assistant professor of animal production at UW. (The book was the fifth edition of The Western Horse: Types and Train- ing published by Interstate Prin- ters and Publishers of Illinois, 1967 copyright.) She said she had met Eleanor (Ellie) Prince who was looking for a book on teach- ing horsemanship for a class she was teaching. Collier said, "Ellie couldn't find one and that led to us writing one." She told the classes, "I try to write early in the morning and sometimes from 9:30 a.m. to noon." In regard to getting bored she said, "I have a hard time finding time to write that bore- dom isn't a problem." Collier pointed out that pub- lishing and the role of a publi- sher created a problem in under- standing for some of the younger children. She said, "When look- with her husband, Roy, near Far- rell (20 miles from Sundance on the Cook Lake road) where they raise Morgan horses and Here- ford cattle. She is the mother of four and a member of Bear Lodge Writers, Wyoming Writers, Inc., and Western Writers of America, Inc. Her publishing credentials include the two above books by Doubleday with a third in the wings of publishing; non-fiction articles in "Smithsonian", "National Wildlife", "Science World", "Horse of Course", and a fiction short story in "Wind singers", a book of short stories by Wyoming Writers. She has won numerous contest in fields of prose and poetry. A native of New York State, the author said she knew she wanted to live in Wyoming at the age of 12 and when she turned 20 in the mid 50's she moved to attend the University of Wyoming at Lara- mie where she met and married her husband.

The librarian said the children were excited, asked for Collier's autograph and were very concerned about the use and cost of the paper. "That tickled me," Wegner added. When asked what she learned from Mrs. Collier's visit, Sun- dance first grader, Brandy Lun- dell said, "Some of the kids asked, 'How do you write books?' and she showed us a pink, magic pen. That's what she writes with. Do you know you can write them on a typewriter?" the youngster asked. "She also showed us some pictures in a book. I can't remember the girl's name; but... she got older and older in the pictures." "You can't just write a story and they'll print it," stated Sun- dance fourth grader Trista Mont- gomery. "You have to make a lot of changes. I always thought an author had to pay to get their work printed. Do you know they get paid to get it printed?" she asked.

Three types of trails are being reveiwed including hiking, snow- mobile and cross-country skiing. Currently, hiking trails are very limited in many areas of the forest. One goal is to establish a hiking trail that would traverse the entire length of the forest. This system would be limited to foot and horseback travel only. Shorter loop trails, han~licapped trails, or those developed for motor bike or ATV use, are also possibilities. Persons or groups that have an interst in any of these types of trail systems should make their recommendations to the Forest Service. Public comments will be used in formulating alternatives and in the decision making pro- cess. Please submit comments to the Bearlodge District Ranger, dance area since 1977. Library Notes ,.
