Re: A YA’s Guide to Writing YA

Don’t assume young adults are some incomprehensible alien race (I see that on some forums).

Don’t assume that people are mentally five years old until they hit the age you think is ‘adult.’

PLEASE don’t do fashion, tech, pop culture, etc. unless you KNOW what’s going on now.

Don’t think you can write a $#%&&* book because it’s ‘just’ YA.

Author: Mari Adkins

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
