Some librarians and editors sometimes suggest subjects that writers should write about for young readers, because not much has been written on these subjects. Sometimes, too, these people suggest subjects that have been written about too much, and writers should avoid them. Dare to Take Up This Challenge: Find a subject one of these people suggest writers should avoid because they have been written about often, then brainstorm and come up with a new unique angle that only you have thought of, then write something fictional or nonfictional using this angle. Dare to send it out to show that there are an infinite number of ways to write about subjects that have often been written about - AND keep in mind that maybe you have discovered one of the great ways to write on this subject.
