I'm sorry I don't have a Monday Middle Grade for you today.  With only one more week of summer left, I am cramming in as much writing as I can.

But I also wanted to share something else with you. If you write for children or teens, from PB to NA, you must check out the FREE online conference WriteOnCon. I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen this year, since it is usually at the beginning of August—but it will be Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Never fear if you are otherwise engaged, all the content remains up for quite awhile afterwards. But one of my favorite parts is hanging out in the forums, meeting other writers, and seeing what everyone is working on.

So, if you haven’t already, check out WriteOnCon!

And, I’m sorry that I will not be posting next Monday, either, due to Labor Day and my wedding anniversary. But I will be back for Insecure Writer’s Group on September 3rd. I am looking forward to featuring more middle grades again in September, including some reads which have appealed to my boys.
Have a wonderful end to your summer!


  1. Oh gosh! With the crazy summer I've had, I completely forgot about WriteOnCon. I don't think I'll be able to make it, though. #hangshead But thanks for sharing the news that it's still on. I'll share, too! Best of luck finishing up that writing. I took most of the summer off to brainstorm, map out two stories, and read, read, read. Today is my first day back - well, kind of. The kiddos go back to school on Wednesday, so that will be my true day back. Today is back to blogging. I've missed it!

  2. Doubt I'll be able to make the WriteOnCon conference. Just hear about it too. Hope you enjoy it if you go.

  3. Take next Monday off! I know I am.
    I don't write for kids, but I know that conference is really huge and offers a lot.

  4. Have fun at Writeoncon. And happy anniversary!
