It's here. . . summer . . . well here for some and almost here for others. As I write this, we have three more days left of school and then it's summer. Since it is almost summer, I thought I'd find some topics for YA and summer. I did a quick google search and these sties popped up.
* Dealing with mental health issues
*10 topics to discuss with your teenagers
*Teen jobs and taxes
Hmm. . . clearly summer isn't all fun and games for teens. They still face many of the same challenges they facing during school times just minus the school work.
So I guess when writing a summer time YA you can be either whimsical or serious just don't forget to throw in a little a teenage angst. But then again I suppose that's sort of the point!!
Well, whether you writing YA this summer or living YA this summer good luck!
Happy writing and have a safe summer!!
