So people have tried to make it out like John’s dug his own grave with a post about why he wouldn’t write about adults.
Especially with the teen suicide post. I felt they massively misinterpreted the original post entirely. What I believe John was hinting at was that adults all have the same problems. They’ve gotten over the initial hurdles in life, and are now settled. This is something to aspire to in reality, however, in books, this is really. boring.
That’s all he’s saying. That the issues adults face, like tax and naming children, don’t compare to the dilemmas teenagers face trying to find their place in life. For the most part, adults are already in their place. They’ve made their bed. This isn’t a bad thing though, and nor is it applicable across the board. There are plenty of adults that are still evolving as people, as substantially as teenagers do.
Teenagers make for a more interesting read because everything matters so much to them. Everything is 100%. Whereas Adults grow accustomed to problems.
So if y’all could stop trying to find things to be angry about, and jumping down people’s throats, that’d be appreciated.
Remember this one?
Another imaged salvaged from the depths of my computer, once thought to be lost forever.
I’ve stumbled across some of my original posts from dailybooth, after thinking they’d been lost to the sands of time.
For any of you that didn’t get the ‘devilishly blurry’ reference.
