What Is YA? by Scott Westerfeld (Reblogged)

What Is YA? (How To Write YA 1) (Reblogged)

I went to Scott Westerfeld’s website after I reviewed Afterworlds. He is running a series that anyone who writes, wants to write, or even reads YA should check out. I put the first 2 paragraphs here, with a link to his page. Check it out. Quite interesting.

What Is YA? (HTWYA 1)

by Scott Westerfeld

Scott WesterfeldMy next novel, Afterworlds, is about a young writer reworking her first novel after NaNoWriMo. I thought a fun and useful promotion for it would be a series of writing advice posts. I got carried away.

So between now and November, this blog will host excerpts from a non-fiction book I’m releasing next year, called How to Write YA. You can’t buy it yet, because it’s not done, but you can preorder Afterworlds. It comes out September 23.
