I stumbled across several teen writing blogs this morning, which somehow led me to the fantastic blog of Kat Zhang, author of What’s Left of Me. What intrigued me about Kat was that she sold her trilogy to a publishing company (HarperCollins) at age 19. This means she wrote a book, found an agent, and revised her book during the height of her teenage years.
Kat Zhang, you give me hope.
When I discover new blogs, I usually spend large amounts of time sifting through old posts. Kat’s post “You Know You’re a Writer When…” made me laugh, and I nodded my head in agreement as I read her humorous list of things that do, in fact, apply to a majority of writers.
I can especially relate to this one:
You know you’re a writer when…
your search history log could probably get you indicted
(Mom, dad, please don’t ever look at my search history log. I promise I’m normal.)
My recent search history log:
teen with freckles
teenage girl spy
what time is it in Australia?
Of course, this isn’t the worst of it… 🙂
