But I didn't begin to write for kids. As many of my classmates, I spend several years (five) doing grown-up literature before I was released. Then, in a course of study, a well-intentioned lady made the most welcome proposal to write for a family. Hey, just because I used to write about kids doesn't mean I was demoted to write for kids.
I had to work hard, attend a few Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators meetings and a children's review group before I found the right mix of what was brewed inside me. These are six sessions I've learnt about young grown-up writing: When you write for young grown-ups, don't look back as an adulthood writer.
Vocal/Speech Find out the vocal and the speech will be there. Phraseology, lexicon and even storyline in a secondary modern novel will be more difficult than a textbook, but perhaps not as difficult as a YA. However, do not linger when you write your first design. Finding the right vocal, and the right speech will come.
When you need to decide whether a phrase or a phrase is the right texture for your text, you probably don't have the right part. There' s very little (if any) distinction in the YA novel languages as an adulthood. There are no thematic boundaries for young adults; you can write about sex, gayness, abuse, drunken drivers, incestia, or sexuality.
It is not, however, about trying to find a problem and then making a tale about it. It' about getting the right vocal, the right personality and storytelling. This is never more true than when you write for young people. Authors don't have to ask a question, they just have to ask it.
Surely your beliefs and attitudes will look through your story, but do not sign this particular agreement between you and the author with the intent to change or preach someone's opinion. Teens have got camera for it, and the vocals will be unauthentic, because - well, it will be. Write Hope Ends Write Hope Ends.
Mostly young grown-up writers are leaving their writers with hopes, if only with a glimpse, despite everything that has happened before. Grown-up fiction that deals with the same topics can make a readership totally unhappy, even totally robbed. However, there still seems to be a feeling of accountability when it comes to young people - not to bore and warn in class, but to allow the opportunity.
