Well beyond that I was simply wondering, what are the DEFINITIONS of Young adult and just regular adult. I used to think I didn't have the skill, but my novel plan just doesn't fit this "scheme" that is Young adult. I dunno just wanted your help to re-assess myself and mi writing. Sorry for awkward wording basically: What makes a novel adult rather then YA beyond length. Now could in theory a 8 year old child write an adult novel? Assuming of course they had a normal vocabulary.
