for the love of genre episode 219


Anyone who has been writing for children for any length of time knows that folks have a tendency to see writers for children as dabblers and writers for adults as real writers. In fact, many children’s writers have flatly been asked when they’re going to do a real book. And within children’s writing, book authors are definitely given more respect than magazine writers. And if you write books, well, writing the more action-oriented, plot-driven genre are definitely seen as less valuable than the character-driven, deeply emotional novels.
