As a young adult/adult/children’s writer, Meg Cabot has my dream job. I know that I am an Elementary Education/ Writing Arts major, but being a well known author sounds much more appealing to me. Don’t get me wrong, I love working with children. But being paid to write stories on whatever I want seems like nothing!
My love for Meg Cabot began when I was in middle school. For Easter one year, The Princess Diaries trigly was in my Easter Basket. I had only heard of Meg Cabot here and there. I had never read anything by her, but was excited to get started.
The Princess Diaries was the first book I read and understood the meaning “I can’t put the book down!” Reading Meg Cabot’s books were always simple. There was never any trouble and they all flowed so smoothly. One book lead to the next and soon enough the series was over. Luckily, Meg Cabot has other series, so i obviously got started on them.
By following Meg Cabot on Twitter, I learned that she is coming out with a new young adult series. Though some may think that I am too old for her series, I like to think differently. Having wrote two children’s book, 41 teen books, and ten adult books, Meg Cabot can cover many genres in her writing.
Meg Cabot is following over 100,000 people on Twitter. Analyzing and making assumptions about her the people she is following is quite difficult. I did come to the conclusion that she follows a lot of females who are in college. This could be a stragegy to find out more about this age group because they are between young adult and adult books, so maybe she is trying to reach out to females this age. I can also conclude that she follows a lot of mothers. By reading people’s mini bios on their Twitter pages have taught me about these complete strangers. Many of them say they are mothers.
By following over 100,000 people, it is safe to say that Meg Cabot has a variety on her Twitter feed. I am sure that when and if she does go through it, she has many different genres at her fingertips. Meg Cabot’s follower list is just about the same size as her following list. This shows that she must use her twitter a lot. Meg Cabot also has her own website. Here you can find much more information about her than what is on her Twitter. Part of her website is her own diary. This is her own version of a blog. She has personal posts and posts written by her characters.
