I really, really, really want to write a YA novel, but I’m overwhelmed at the thought of it. When I was a YA, The Outsiders was practically my Bible. It was somewhere in between Anne of Green Gables and Marguerite Duras’ The Lover. I have some ideas, but of course, since I’m me, they might be JUST A LITTLE too adult to really fly as YA. Still, it would be nice to write that novel that helps some kid get through middle and high school.
