I’m reading another amazing YA novel, Eleanor and Park. It’s nuanced and wonderfully written. At first that depressed me. I will never be able to write anything like that. And then it came to me. I’m not going to try. I’m going to write crass, commercial, funny and wise ass fiction. If the reader finds it meaningful it will be strictly projection.*
