I’ve started on a new venture this week. I’m writing a Young Adult poetry novel. I’ve completed the first 1,000 and so far so good. There is every chance that others will think it’s absolute trash, but I’m finding it liberating.
I recently read What My Mother Doesn’t Know by Sonya Sones and I have to say that I was impressed. Books like this are rarely a commercial success, but I would be very proud to get mine published all the same. Is it one for Cinnamon, Salt or even The Red Telephone?
I think this type of novel has three great advantages: you can get really close to the main character, they’re quite a quick read, and each poem is still self-contained. Lets hope I manage to make this one work.
