John Scalzi Gives Advice To Teenage Writers

As you may have heard, a teenage writer by the name Christopher Paolini has had huge success with his ERAGON book series. This sort of thing doesn't happen often.

Teenage prodigies are still rare in book-writing. Why is that? John Scalzi explains in "10 Things Teenage Writers Should Know About Writing."

Well, crap, have you read Paoloni's stuff? Brilliant example of marketing, not writing.

I haven't read Paolini's books, so I don't feel entitled to judge his literary skills.

Saw Paolini's appearance on David Letterman, though. He did well -- probably sold many more books after that appearance!
