Writing Advice

Self Care for Writers

It honestly doesn’t matter if you’re a writer or not, self care is important. There are some myths about it being self-indulgent, a waste of time, and expensive. Not to mention the idea that all artists are supposed to suffer (queue my eye roll here).

Genre vrs Audience in KidLit

I could say this with a single sentence but I plan to go on a tangent. Young Adult and Middle Grade are not genres of children’s literature.

But they have their own sections at the bookstore.

No kidding. Kids have their own sections at the department store too, but it’s not meant to do anything other than dictate what sizes the pants are.
