Momo's 17th Birthday Bash: Day 6



It's been five days since my birthday and I feel no different. Like they say, age is nothing but a number . . .  right?

Welcome Jana Oliver, author of The Demon Trapper's Daughter!


Turning seventeen is a truly a new chapter in one’s life and I think that’s why authors often choose that age for their characters. Seventeen-year-olds come with some truly great personal armor: they are sure they are immortal and that fearlessness allows a character to take on situations that would scare an older person out of their mind. There might be some personal insecurities, but those are often overcome by sheer guts. Teens have a drive, an intensity, a zest for learning how life really works and dealing with it in their own terms.

Looking back in my own life, seventeen is that that final deep breath before taking on the adult world. At that age you’re not good at reading the tea leaves. Will your future be awesome or sucky? (I’ll give you a hint: it’ll be a mixture of both. Some of it will be so amazing you can’t believe it’s your life. Other parts make you wish it was someone else’s.) Some days you think you own the world. Other days, not so much. That’s the basis for great story – a character taking on life while learning who he or she really is.

So Happy Birthday and welcome to another year in your life. May it be truly incredible!
