Good morning, Mini-Women! You are awesome, as always, making honest comments that actually HELP people. Are you up for giving me more good stuff to pass along to my writing students while I'm here in Philadelphia?
Think about what you LOVE in a book written for your age group. What keeps you stuck to the page the way Maeryn is in this picture? What do you like in characters? In the things that happen? In the way a book is written? In the way GOd is talked about?
If you'll share those thoughts in a comment (or more than one), I'll pass them along to my students here who are learning how to write for you, today, tomorrow and Saturday. (Yeah, these people are so into it they'll even come to classes on SATURDAY!)
Thanks, Mini-Women. You're the best.
