Levels of Maturity

What do a crawling baby, a kid reading his first book, and teen with a new permit have in common?

That’s right—they’re all maturing.

It’s part of life, a part of growing up and a part of growing older. Sure, the maturing might not be always in the same way. But we all do it, and it affects our perceptions of the world. That’s why it’s important to consider our level of maturity when creating guidelines.

As a result, during the next few weeks (four to be exact, if I don’t get long-winded), we will be considering our maturity as it pertains to our perspective of fiction. We will look at the four basic levels we each mature through (infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood), and consider these four levels within the two arenas that affect our fiction habits the most: mental/emotional capacity and spiritual development.
