Am not sure if i have hit that point yet, mainly due to the ‘silent’ zones which i fear have retarded me in terms of writing repetition and the accretion of competence in ’ll see what the next 12 to 24 months , this was a very good article and i would recommend it to all teens who want to write — regardless of whether or not they would be fact, i’d say that those who are offended, probably [i]need[/i] to (i am speaking to the youth at this point) let me tell you, as a former teen writer: there is a massive wall out there which stands between you and your dreams of publishing success.
It helps you see things others don’t, which is an advantage in your writing, and also in the workaday aspect of being a : relax.

And boy, was this helpful: i’ve been honing my writing for something like six years now, being at the ripe old age of fifteen and a half, and found this list enormously helpful.
My concept album lyrics aren’t just bad because they’re the work of an immature writer, but also because it’s clear to anyone who cares to look that i was listening to whole hell of a lot of pink floyd when i was writing them. I’ve been writing for well over a year now (i’m 18) and agree with almost everything you say. Ve read some very good books by teen writers, good writing is good writing regardless of the author; but all those writers used the language properly.

I’m hoping to concetrate some time on creative writing, and i should be able to with the college’s unusual structure, but i’m definatly not going to major in it. These courses and others of a relative sort, though informative, don’t teach anyone how to write; living teaches us how to write; writing teaches us how to write.

I haven’t any idea why you have convinced yourself you know a thing or three about life, writing or the reason for writing. Teenagers, not having had the time or the opportunity to make and carry out the kind of choices that individualize adults, are forced to frantically rely on whatever they can grub up to distinguish themselves from the faceless ally, i think our idealization of individuality is hopelessly tangled and misguided, but i won’t go into that s what i really question is whether or not it’s useful to define teenagers as teenagers–at least to the extent that we do.
