Quote for the Day

"When people ask me what qualifies me to be a writer for children, I say I was once a child. But I was not only a child, I was, better still, a weird little kid."
--Katherine Paterson

So, I suppose those of us who write YA should feel thankful that we were once weird teenagers? :)
Hope your inner (weird) child is alive and well and writing something new for us to read!

That's such a weird question, "what are your qualifications to be a writer?" It really hit a nerve with me for some reason.

We need licensure for writers so that we don't have reckless writers out there hitting people with stray periods or inappropriate colons.
