You Have to Write Badly

Agreed. I’ve done it. I still do it. Maybe this is bad. But I am writing a Young Adult book. No vampires. No unicorns or princesses. Maybe a little love, just a little. But it’s a real high school, and it’s got violence and grit, maybe more than some people would be comfortable with.

As for princesses and love. I can’t write them. I tried in a writing class, and I ended up with a dark story…no good.

I’m good at real, or close to real. I have seen what I write, but I also can imagine things. Things that happen behind the scenes that no one is supposed to know about.

Are you curious?
