George Bernard Shaw said that youth is wasted on the young. Each year as I creep further and further away from my own teeny-bopper days, I come closer and closer to understanding what he meant by that. It's such a great thing to be young and have so much life ahead of you, so many plans to make, so much energy. So much time.
Of course aging is inevitable. The years have a way of coming at us quickly - like it or not. I suppose that's one of the reasons I like writing in the YA genre. To stay connected to those lazy, hazy, crazy days of way-back-when. Some folks think you have to be a young person to appreciate reading a YA novel. That's simply hogwash. That magical youthful side of ourselves is always there in our hearts, just waiting for us to tap into its giddy glory.
That said, I'm super-excited to participate in Kathy's latest Hop which is all about things YA! http://iamareadernotawriter.blogspot.com/2012/07/young-adult-giveaway-hop-sign-ups.html
