She was motivated by the other students in her school. She observedthe "socs" and the greasers first hand.
Because she never had books about teenagers as she was growing up.
she lived around greasers and socs
She was actually fifteen when she first began it. It was the yearshe was sixteen and a junior in high school that she did themajority of the work (that year she made a D in cr…eative writing).One day a friend of hers was walking home from school and these"nice" kids jumped out of a car and beat him up because they didn'tlike his being a greaser. This made her mad and she just went homeand started pounding out a story about this boy who was beaten upwhile he was walking home from the movies--the beginning of TheOutsiders. She was just something to let off steam. She didn't haveany grand design. She just sat down and started writing it.
Longhand, then into a computer. By the way, right handed
She was too old to play pretend.
She was 15 or 16 years old. The same year that she wrote the book, she flunked her creative writing class. Ironic (btw, best book ever!)
Because she relates to teens. She helps them with her books. Tells them there is a rebal side to life.
Her boyfriend wouldn't let her suck his pee-pee until she finished up The Outsiders. True life.
She usually writes about teenagers because she never had any good teenager books growing up and now she writes really good books for teenagers.

S.E. Hinton wrote this book because she was inspired by the two gangs or groups in her high school.
