Actually, Stephenie Meyer's writing isn't very good. Her WORK, on the other hand, is absolutely addicting, but if you notice,
she overuses adjectives in one entence. She repeats words, and has plenty of grammar mistakes. Don't get me wrong,
I'm a HUGE Twihard. In fact, half of my room is filled with Twilight merchandise and I even skipped school one time
to go to a Hot Topic event for the Lost Concert. But let's face it, her writing is not her forte. It's her passion. Look at
the last book--did you notice how choppy the sentences were?
Don't get offended and defensive about it. You can still love books that aren't exactly literary works, which means you
love the characters or plot.
AND, it can be the editors' fault the writing is weak, because they let it get published in what could be assumed to be a
lazy moment instead of getting back to it and working and working on it. Still, no matter what, I'll still be a fan. You just
have to have a sense of reality, you know? How can you write when you don't see the truth?
About getting published as a teenager, you don't put your age in your query, so how can they know?
QUESTION: Are literary agents allowed to reject you simply because if your age? Even if they probably already
said they want to represent you?
I know publishers can. I wrote that I was under 18 on a picture book submission, and they said they liked it (this was probably a lie lol) and that because I am under 18 they can't take it.
Dunno bout Agents
