FC: Never A Failure,F. Scott Fitzgerald!
1: F. Scott Fitzgerald's childhood was upper middle class. He was catholic. His high school published his detective stories in the school newspaper. He also carried around a notebook so that he never missed a great story. "Grow up, and that is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much easier to skip it and go from one childhood to another," said Fitzgerald.
2: The Roaring Twenties was the age of jazz, flappers, prohibition, and speakeasies. "I wrote all the time about these things. I never put my pencil down. I got in trouble many times," said Fitzgerald.
3: Fitzgerald is like Roald Dahl. They are both famous and respected authors. They both had problems with family issues. In addition, they have both written a great selection of books. Fitzgerald's favorite quote was "Writers aren't exactly people, they are a whole lot of people trying to be one person."
4: Fitzgerald had tons of struggles. He dropped out of Princeton and went to the army. He got deported down to Alabama where he met Zelda. They were planning on getting married, but she called it off, because he wasn't rich. Fitzgerald submitted his first article to Charles Scribners. He spent so much time on that story. He got rejected twice! Then, the book finally passed. Zelda married him a week after it got published.!
5: Fitzgerald's favorite piece was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. | "I love the story. I love how everything happened opposite. He was born with the characteristics of an elderly man. Then he went to war. After that, he found his true love," said Fitzgerald. | Hello :)
6: Fitzgerald inspired the generations with his books about the Jazz Age. | He hopes that he will inspire kids of the 21st century.
