Mo-tivational Monday – Stay Courageous

These are strange times we're living through, but we writers have a choice. We can use the time at home to scour the internet for the latest news, check twitter obsessively, or drown our worries and sorrows in the loud noise of entertainment/social media offerings, or we can write. We can shake this world off, leave it and the sorrows behind as we enter the world of our imagination, and write. When this is over, [...]

Mo-tivational Monday: It’s A New Day!

Truth is, every single day that we wake up and draw breath gives us an opportunity to keep going. Keep writing, keep believing, keep doing the thing that makes our hearts sing. So don't let a Monday bring you down. Get [...]

Motivational Monday

Stop beating yourself up, reading and deleting all of those sentences that sounded so good when you wrote them, but now? Ugh. Now, you want to throw your computer in the trash. It's a lie. All of it. You can do this. Just keep writing. That's what this process is about. You write, you revise, you polish, you discard and you keep. But it all begins with writing. Keep going, You've got this.

Mo-tivational Monday

If you're like me, you're looking back at a lot of wasted days in 2019 when you should have been writing. We've all been there. You have the best of intentions but life has a way of interfering. You're handed a big project, the flu makes its way through your house one family member at a time, the constant barrage of cable news! But guess what? Today is a new day. Find a minute to [...]

Happy New Name, New Site, New Year!

Happy New Year! As you can see, we're celebrating in style with a new name and a new look. Why the change? Although we had a lot of fun with the Mafia theme over the past few years - it does have a certain "negative" connotation. Since we're all about encouragement here at MGM, we thought it was time for a glam-up. Who is ready for a fresh shot of Middle-Grade Mojo?? We're excited to [...]

MG Book Review: Can I Touch Your Hair? Poems of Race, Mistakes, and Friendship

I knew that I'd like CAN I TOUCH YOUR HAIR by Irene Latham and Charles Waters because I was already a BIG fan of Latham's work. Her book, WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON ANTARCTICA, is one that I gift to every animal-loving kid I know. Still, I wasn't prepared for the full-blown love I'd experience when reading her newest. The blurb: How can Irene and Charles work together on their fifth-grade poetry project? They don't know each [...]
