No Net Ensnares Me

A literary nerd set loose on the internet. You know how it goes.

People who say that John Green writes unrealistically mature teenagers are the reason that actual teenagers are looked at as a joke and their feelings are dismissed as underdeveloped. 

One of the most frequent responses I got in creative writing class was that my child/teen characters were too smart and didn’t sound like that.

My response is usually “My first words were ‘I’m pondering’, so…”
