if you can't think of a witty title, just say... tuesday stuff {tuesday stuff!}.

So, a second ago, I was all pouting and frustrated, scrolling down my blogger dashboard looking for nothing in particular, telling my husband, "I don't want to go to small group! I have to write, but I forgot how!" And he kissed me and said, "You haven't forgotten how." And I said, "Yes-huh I have! And I just remembered that I have to blog today and I haven't done that yet either and I'm never-- Oh! 'How to Return to Writing After A Long Break!' Well, looky there." Thanks, Nathan Bransford.

Today is Tuesday, the day I usually participate in this:


But since my brain went all mushy and happy after Kristen's interview {don't forget to enter the giveaway, if you like!}, and I decided to regain control of my writing habits... I totally forgot about it. To tide you over, here is an interesting and pertinent video of Agent Kristin explaining the difference between YA and MG {another thing I've been stressing over, lately}:


And last but not least, it's time for the Campaign! I'm very excited about this one because it's only a month long, with two challenges instead of three. And, as always, it will be a fun chance to get to know other writers and sharpen those commenting skills. I hope you'll join me!

  3. Uh Oh! Don't stress about Ma-Lori, I've sort of learned the difference in MG and YA now! Yay! I liked Agent Kristen's explanation, but also I found another explanation that helped clarify it for me when I thought about the two explanations in tandem. Have you read this? http://writeoncon.com/2011/08/middle-grades-got-heart/ I thought it was good. OK, I love you juliemybird! :)

  4. I'll be joining the campaign again :-)

    As for the differences in YA and MG, I say write first, worry afterwards - or is that where you are? :-)

  5. I found agent Kristin's video a few days ago and it was really helpful. I should probably put it in my youtube favs.
    Nice to meet you by the way.
