Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival", where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing or reading-related question and answer it in on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
You're more than welcome to participate! Just answer the question/topic on your own blog, and leave a link to it in the comments.
Topic #11: Your Real Young Adult Writing
C'mon, whip it out! Your old writing, I mean. Short stories, poems, journal entries, (Godhelpus) novels – what did your prose look like when you were a young adult?
Amanda Hannah: "I was a nosy, obnoxious little observer in Junior High..."
Kate Hart: "Yes I do have penis envy--I'll be the first to admit..."
Kaitlin Ward: "Genetically modified kangaroos have taken over Earth..."
Lee Bross: "I was living the characters I write now..."
Kristin Miller: "It was epic fantasy, with kick butt female leads and lots of men-slaves..."
Michelle Shusterman: "The main character's name was Claire. Her last name was most likely Cliché..."
Emilia Joyce Plater: "Then I went ahead and did cartwheels on every writing rule imaginable..."
Kody Keplinger: "Yep. Laugh it up. Poetry inspired by Mischa Barton..."
Kirsten Hubbard: "My crusade against the conformists was like a holy mission..."
Kristin Briana Otts: "Pretty much every character, at some point in time, was seduced by the Dark Lord..."
