Ok, so I'm in the process of writing my novel and I'm reading all of the books, and I'm subscribing to all of the forums, and I'm basically in super writer mode and I started going through another how to write a novel book. In this one it says that I need a theme, which makes sense, and I need that theme to fit my thesis, which is also a good point. Here's the thing: Like a lot of young adult books, my thesis has to do with the sometimes overwhelming and underwritten theme of ACCEPTANCE. I put that in capital letters because I could, it means nothing except for its importance. So acceptance, that is my theme and to some extent: Friendship... except, I don't have great friends. I don't have any basis as to what I'm writing about because honestly except for a few of them, I have some really shitty friends. I don't know what to write about, except that I want to write about friendship, and that angle is kind of screwing me hardcore. What should I do? Should I pick a different thesis or should I just write about someone else's not shitty friends? Thank you in advance for your input.
