Sunday morning snark

Via much of my reading list, the latest article by a writer who has just discovered YA, and so is going to tell us things we already know, presented as if she's one of the first to learn them.

Aren't grownups cute?

More seriously: The question really isn't "Is YA worthy of my efforts?" It's "Are my efforts worthy of YA?"

I was about to cite all the YA-specific reasons for this, but then I realized those reasons don't matter--if you can't approach any genre your book is being published in--YA, adult SF/fantasy, romance, mystery, mainstream, whatever--this way, that's likely not the right genre for you.
