Camp New Adult, a month-long exploration of the basics of writing New Adult presented by the folks behind NA Lit Chat, is still going strong! We kicked off week 2 with #NALitChat over on the Twitters last Thursday night by getting several NA authors to share with us their brainstorming and story building tricks and tools. You can check out what they had to say, and what our Twitter chatters had to say, HERE.
Also, if you're interested in trying your hand at NA story building, be sure to stop by our camp forum, take part in our weekly camp challenge, and mingle with the NA-crazy folks who hang out there. Bug repellent and hiking shoes are encouraged. :)
Week 3 of camp begins with this Thursday's chat (9 PM Eastern, as always). We'll focus on how to use writing tools--like Scrivener--to maximize our writing time.
Would love to have you stop by and chat with us!
New Adult literature is NOT...
Warmed up YA.
Cooled down Adult.
All about college.
All about sex.
Just for females.
Concerned with appearances.
Afraid of exploring controversial issues.
Created entirely by self-published authors.
Full of idealized characters and themes.
Defined by the boundaries of youth OR adulthood.
About your parents.
Impossible to relate to.
Easy to ignore.
That's just my personal list, and doesn't necessarily reflect the feelings of the Alley in general. But we'd definitely like to know: What would make your list of things NA isn't? Or maybe just tell us what you think it is.
Sound off in the comments!
