Sometimes blog posts written days or weeks apart just happen to go live on the same day. Such was the case today! I blogged about how some of my favorite authors use humor to lighten up tough topics in middle grade at From the Mixed Up Files. AND I submitted my first contribution to The Winged Pen’s Master Your Craft series, a post on using three of my favorite craft books to make sure your plot arc and character arc are working together in your story.
Both of these topics are on my mind as I dive into revisions on one middle-grade story and wrap up a second one. So, as is often the case, the time spent away from them working on these blog posts was not wasted. I hope you enjoy them, and that you share them.
