    4.5 stars I can t fully give it a 5 stars just because I read it all through first without doing the workshops Once I complete all the workshops I ll have a better understanding of whether this book works well or not But, despite not completing everything, the book was still packed with useful information.Also, since someday I d love to work in publishing, I found the last couple of chapters insightful and eye opening there was even a part when I finally realized why I started noticing an increase in YA Westerns in the last couple months when before I had never even thought they existed Overall, I ll know when I finish everything, but from what I ve read I think this one can be a great tool for anyone myself included wanting to write a YA novel.

    This review can also be found at received this book in a Goodreads first reads giveaway In this book, Juliet Mushens, a professional literary agent, gives authors advice on writing young adult fiction Covering everything from a novel s characters to the publishing process, this teach yourself guide utilizes examples from popular novels, personal anecdotes and helpful exercises throughout.This book came at the perfect time for me I want to write a YA novel, I ve had this idea in my head for a while but I never got to putting specific details down on paper This workshop within a book pushed me to get my ideas organized, and helped me to improve my writing skills in the process.Exercises were suggested in each chapter, often during or after the author explained something or gave tips These exercises, ranging from creating small lists to editing pre written paragraphs to researching literary agents, gave me new perspectives and forced me to really delve into the world that my novel was set in and to think realistically about my goals.One of my favourite exercises included drawing a map of the world my novel was to be set in I hadn t really thought of doing this before as a way to organize my setting and keep things consistent, but after completing it I realized just how valuable this strategy could be when it comes to describing setting, travelling and distance While this is specifically oriented towards writing in the young adult genre, I feel many tips within the pages can be applied to other genres as well I appreciated this because if I decide to write books targeted at a different age range, I ll still be able to improve my stories and navigate the world of publishing much easier I absolutely recommend this book to those who want advice when it comes to writing If you want to write a YA book and you would like some guidance, this book is for you.

    Excellent starting pointYou won t go wrong with this book if you are starting out Covers some of the key areas I had to search for months to find answers to.If you re a little further along really helps with the submission process particularly the synopsis and covering letter elements.

    An excellent read for people who have an idea for a book to write but have nowhere to start in the planning process Mushens lays it out step by step to make sure all of your bases are covered and over the course of the exercises, workshops and edits, you have a pretty solid plan and foundation for starting your novel.

    If you re looking for a book that will get you started on writing your first novel, this is wonderful However, if you re seeking insight on YA specifically, this only briefly brushes on genre specific topics.

  8. Luke Luke says:

    I think Get Started in Writing Young Adult Fiction is an informative read if you want to pursue writing YA stories The exercises are helpful with helping to develop or discover your style And the author uses her own experience as a literary agent to give helpful advice so writers know what to go for or what to avoid It is definitely a book I will be referring to for my writing needs.
