It’s been four days into the contest so far, and I’m a little ahead of the game. Although it’s been going smoothly so far, each say has been getting a little tougher and tougher. Certain questions keep popping up in my mind. Here’s one of the big ones that has been rattling around in the noggin.
Has anyone explained to the other members of this national novel writing month group that 50,000 words isn’t really a novel? I mean, it’s not an adult novel, and even if young adult literature is popular is that what everybody is writing?
Yes, from the people I talk to, everyone seems to be doing young adult, typically referred to as YA. Which is fine, I guess. After Harry Potter success, I can guess people are after that sweet teet of children’s fantasy.
The Illustrious Mr. Charlton
p.s. Ok, that last sentence came out wrong.
