What did I learn from reading this week? That there is a reason publishing professionals say pacing is everything when writing for teens. After depositing our paycheck, I promptly rushed to my computer to download Ally Carter’s newly released book “Only the Good Spy Young”. And I dropped all the other books to leap into its pages. The pacing is so perfect in this book that it almost reads itself. You open to the first page and sit your rear onto the couch and poof! 80 pages have suddenly zipped through your mind with no effort whatsoever. The book is fun and fast and flirty. Perfect for the teen girls that make up its intended audience. And although I am fully aware of my own personal ancientness, I absolutely love them as well. So now I have to teach myself the art of perfect pacing. I better go and read a few more good books, just to get myself started.
