I write young adult stories so I always try not to talk down to my readers, but it's only now that I'm in the classroom that I realise how smart they are, especially when they think you don't know what you're talking about.
The amount of questions I've been asked just trying to gauge my knowledge of the subject is phenomenal. so, now I know, even though I write paranormal and horror that I really need to know my world and characters inside out or else the reader will not be satisfied.
How do you prepare to write? Do you know the world before you start or do you jump straight in?
