A-Z Challenge: Y: Young Americans


I have been writing about TV all month which has been really fun!

I have been trying to write about what TV has taught me about writing.


I am probably the only person who watched this show, but people: Ian Somerhalder. Cary off The Good Wife. It is worth seeking out (if it’s on DVD anywhere. I taped it off Channel 5 here years ago).

I am not sure what I’ll pick out about the writing. It has some ridiculous plots, assuming that a girl could hide out in a boys school and nobody would notice. NOBODY. But somehow it got away with it.

I am going to put that down to: Ian Somerhalder.

Which teaches me a hot male love interest and you can get away with a lot. ;) Kidding. Kinda.

Of course, there is a separate debate about a love interest covering up for a poor main plot (avoid this) and do YA novels in particular always need a love interest? But in the meantime I struggled for what else to say about this other than: Ian Somerhalder.

Quotes: "What, you need directions? Oh, the way to Rawley, right? Let's see. It's right up the road. Just follow your nose. It smells just like money." 


  1. I've never even heard of this show. You either have very good taste of very bad taste.

    Moody Writing

  2. Ha! I agree with Mooderino.

  3. I don't know the show, but I liked the quote about smelling like money.

  4. I remember the show but I didn't watch it.

  5. Mood - I suspect bad taste, LOL!

    Juliet - ha ha!

    C Lee - it is a good quote ;)

    Alex - I am not sure anyone did!

    Sheena-kay - LOL! I suspect so.


Please comment, I'd love to know what you think! :)
