If Contemporary YA quietly disappeared tomorrow would teens even notice?
That, friends, is the question at fomagrams.
Sometimes as a writer, I'm a little scared that the books I think of have no point, as in, "There's no point in writing this because there's no werewolf in this."
Worse, sometimes I'm scared that the fantasy and science fiction books that I want to write are buying into a hype that's already existing. No, I'm not going to write steampunk. Or werewolves. Or Animorphs, although that was a really fun series. I really want to write original content, but there's none of that left, really.
All writing is rewriting another story - and these days, it's another story with vampires.
Is there a point to continuing to try?
P'raps Mr. E. will provoke some thought.
