"I just wanted you to know that we are using your book, How to Write Your Novel in Nine Weeks, and podcast as part of our homeschool curriculum this year. My daughter, age 17, has always wanted to be a writer. She has written many books, but hasn't finished most of them. Her genre of choice seems to lean to middle/upper school, no vampires or sexual content. I think this is a much forgotten demographic. Thanks for making available this writers program."
If you're homeschooling, include novel writing. If you know a homeschooling family, suggest they try it.
A young person can write a novel. You can. Really.
Just keep writing.
