FEATURED WRITING FILE no. 7: A different form of writing, a young-adult novel away from the mainstream
 
Creativity definition:
-The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination.
-the state of being creative, that is, resulting from originality of thought, expression, etc.; imaginative; originative; productive.
 
Innovation definition:
-resulting from introducing something new
-the state of being innovative
 
As pointed out in the “keypoints of file no. 2”, most stories in booksie which have gone fixed in the mainstream are nothing of being creative or innovative; the stories share a lot of aspects from one another of their own class whether these stories will be romance, young adult, vampire-fantasy, and/or fanfiction; resulting from an overused theme, overused characterization, and overused plot development.
 
Overused definition:
-excessive use; to use too much or too often
 
“December: Four Shadows”, the prequel of Amy2609’s novel is a different form of young adult. This may be known as a young adult/fantasy genre, and take note that “December” was read, reviewed, and approved by three published authors from Australia in which they are Amy2609’s teachers in her writing subject.

Using Amy2609’s creativity, December is about a story about the lives of five teenagers, and on a transparency basis, their lives have different complexes. The entire 91-chapter novel was able to deliver the complete, grasping, character development and maximized the emphasis of plot which the reader can fully comprehend what the novel is all about. This story didn’t follow the ‘key points of file no.2’; as much, the development of each character, one will approve to say how Amy2609 treated her characters for the story were not just mannequins; mannequins in which as I can bluntly put it, characters that were placed in the story for the sake of being placed in the story. Clearly, the characters of the “December” novel have their purposes which will develop the plot as set and written.
 
Amy2609 didn’t made her novel and fasten or wrote the end of the story as she plans to, but the characters and the development of the story made her fasten or wrote the end of the story—and that is the essential point of the peak of creativity—that the novel is so good, the overall development of the entire novel made a true novel worth of publishing.
 
My words are true and I’m not exaggerating; however, the reads and comments of the “December” novel painted a different picture:

Total 3,033369
(to state the obvious, the tally only reached this record because this has 91 chapters; but as you’ve witnessed in the other articles I have presented, such as the “romance” and “young adult” genres have owned more numbers and they haven’t passed beyond 10 chapters of their work)
 
Mean 33.74.1
Story first posted last December 18, 2008
INTERPRETATION:
 
The novel is long, yet by looking at the date this was first posted, this was posted last December 18, 2008. The reason ‘it is long to read’ doesn’t apply, as well as with common-sense, Amy2609 didn’t post this novel in one-go, she updates it from time to time; with the final chapter posted last October 16, 2009. Needless to ask, because primarily this novel is different from the rest of the mainstream, it didn’t get as much reads and comments.
 
This data was taken last December 09, 2009. Regarding the booksie_member-factor of Amy2609, I say if rated 1-10, her factor would be 7 out of 10; 7 as her right implies, she chose the novels/writings she reads in booksie; still it doesn’t give the reason as to why lots of booksie members won’t read her novel; she has lots of fans of about 55 members, and her writing is already excellent.
 
The next matter to focus applies with the length of the story, of course, 91 chapters may be worth of too much time when reading, still, with each chapter, it was updated on a weekly basis; Amy2609 didn’t post her novel in one-go, as the updates go from time to time.
 
The next faulty matter to focus is the names of the characters. Matt, Rei, Sakura, Syran, Hikari, and Akira—very Japanese-esque way of naming characters, hence most booksie members’s thoughts have pivoted to the ‘anime-degradation’ theory in which most booksie members disregard writings that are somewhat anime-ish in tone; still I for one, who was able to finish reading the entire December prequel can state out and clarify that this novel is nothing like drawn from an anime.
 
CONCLUSION:
December has a lot of potential, and supreme quality of novel; yet it failed to get its spot in the kind of quality booksie_members sought out as pointed in the previous files and the previous studies; and this quality they are seeking out is what we can termed for as ‘mediocre’. Indeed, stories which are mediocre and insignificant or not noteworthy can find an easy-liking and can win the hearts of many booksie_members. It’s as simple as that.
 
AGAIN, TO REMIND THE READER:
Booksie Member Factor (or simply member-factor):
 
Booksie Members are mostly called for and see fellow writers through respective factors, and as I observed this in early 2008 since this wasn’t the case back in 2007, a member must have this in his/her fields to captivate more members (it’s a sad ordeal):
 
-good story (but better story works best if the genre is in the scope of the big-four genres as PROVEN)
 
-main picture profile must be inviting
 
-attractive pen name/s (just because he or she is named as ‘this’ doesn’t mean he/she cannot write good tales)
 
-reads and comments other members’ stories
 
-comments positively (to bluntly put this, a people-pleaser) or positively in a way it’s a constructive criticism. Still, constructive criticism may be a drawback for some members who don’t know the difference between negative comments and a constructive criticism. (Yes, it happens)
