An Interview With WEbook's March (5 Word) Challenge Winner!06:45
This is definitely true of the topic tackled by our March (5 Word) Challenge winner's entry, Mid-Century Teenage Drama, by pdsuitt. Within her story, Pam has woven the pervasive issue of bullying, into a story which resonates with anyone who has ever been to High School (pretty much all of us then!).
Whether you were the character, you saw the character, or you had a hand in creating this character, almost everyone will be able to identify with the events described by Pam in Mid-Century Teenage Drama.
Recently we interviewed Pam about her story, the ideas behind it, and how she managed to slip those five tricky words into the piece so seamlessly...
Mid-Century Teenage Drama, is a very emotionally driven piece of writing - how did you find your inspiration for this story when considering the five words you had to use within it?
To be honest, I watch Austin and Ally on occasion and used to watch ICarly before it was canceled. Nick Teen and Disney have made this genre burst at the seams. You throw in the “Twilight” series of books by Meyers and the rest is history. Even Harry Potter became a teen with girls, as well as Voldemort on his mind as the series progressed.
