YA writers and bloggers unite each week to share their thoughts on what it's like going indie in today's publishing world.
With moving to China, I had to let a few things go. YA Indie Carnival was one of them, but I am VERY pleased to be back on board with this awesome group.
Today's post is all about going to college. So far, I haven't actually written any "off to college" type scenes. I'm sure they will come, but for today I thought I'd talk to you about the actual experience.
In New Zealand, my home country, not many students go off to college. Not like they do in the States. A large portion of them stay at home and make their way to University each day. It's a great way to save money, but man - I so wished for that college experience. I think it's really healthy for kids to go off to college. I know it would have been a little scary and sometimes overwhelming, but I would have loved the adventure of it. A chance to spread my wings and work things out on my own.
Did you go off to college?
Are you at college now?
Was it/is it a good experience?
