  • OliviaBrophie's avatarabout 15 minutes ago Agreed. The internal sense must be there in order for the story to work. But you could have a person that matures backwards. #flfantasy

  • OfficialLucyG's avatarabout 15 minutes ago @PineapplePress I think kids fantasy novels are like nostalgia for adults, the characters are very reminiscent and comforting #flfantasy

  • pineapplejune's avatarabout 26 minutes ago Ah, you are in England. Do you write in your garden shed like Pullman? #flfantasy

  • OliviaBrophie's avatarabout 27 minutes ago I think there often isn't a transition to fantasy, it is just a natural growth from whatever they were reading before. #flfantasy

  • pineapplejune's avatarabout 31 minutes ago Example? #flfantasy

  • OfficialLucyG's avatarabout 31 minutes ago @OliviaBrophie I particularly love the use of adjectives that's available. I think you have more fun with description with kids #flfantasy

  • PineapplePress's avatarabout 32 minutes ago RT @OliviaBrophie: #flfantasy Adult fantasy readers are pretty tolerant of crazy proper nouns.

  • OliviaBrophie's avatarabout 32 minutes ago #flfantasy Adult fantasy readers are pretty tolerant of crazy proper nouns.

  • PineapplePress's avatarabout 32 minutes ago RT @pineapplejune: Oh yes. That's why we all (adults included) love H. Pottter #flfantasy

  • PineapplePress's avatarabout 34 minutes ago RT @OfficialLucyG: Writing fantasy for young people has certainly given me chance 2 use words I wouldn't if writing for adults #flfantasy

  • pineapplejune's avatarabout 35 minutes ago Guess adults are a different type of sponge. #flfantasy

  • PineapplePress's avatarabout 38 minutes ago Quote: @OliviaBrophie Adults on the other-hand, often lose the patience necessary to investigate a word. #flfantasy

  • pineapplejune's avatarabout 38 minutes ago Children soak in words. That's their survival job. #flfantasy

  • OfficialLucyG's avatarabout 39 minutes ago @PineapplePress I really agree with that for all the reasons he stated. The mind is like a sponge in that age group #flfantasy

  • PineapplePress's avatarabout 39 minutes ago RT @OliviaBrophie: Riordan's books are great way 2 intro readers 2 Greek mythology. Still odd 2 me 2 use a story 2 teach a story. #flfantasy

  • pineapplejune's avatarabout 44 minutes ago Pullman manages to engage us deeply into philosophy and theology in kids' books #flfantasy

  • OfficialLucyG's avatarabout 44 minutes ago @OliviaBrophie They sound charming! #flfantasy

  • PineapplePress's avatarabout 44 minutes ago @OfficialLucyG #flfantasy Sort of a trick! :) Chris had a nice point about that too in his blog. I hadn't thought of it that way.
