I'm reading a great book on the craft of writing:
I'll have a full review for you down the road, but until then, I wanted to share with you a point from the book's author, Mary Kole.
"You don't have to be edgy to write YA. In fact, that's a huge trap that most aspiring writers of YA fall into. They try on a snarky voice, shoehorn in a paranormal element, and put their character in a dangerous situations -- all because they think that's what's selling right now. But all it does is come off as forced. If you don't have a dark story in you, don't try to write one. Simple as that" (Writing Irresistible Kidlit).
