I don't have kids of my own, but I do remember being one. While I loved writing fiction, I didn't know how to turn what I wrote into a complete novel.
When I saw more than one review saying the reviewer passed one of my fiction writing guides on to a high school student who found it helpful, I started thinking about tailoring a workbook to middle grade kids. (I began writing longer fiction around that age.)
But with so many projects on my plate, I didn't get to doing it. (Nothing like too many projects on the wish-list to create stress!)
Then when many schools shifted to online learning due to Covid-19 concerns, I realized parents and teachers were looking for more creative outlets for students and children. That prompted me to finally write How To Write A Novel Grades 6 – 8.
It's available as a workbook or in a Kindle edition and includes clear, simple steps to shape ideas and scenes into novels.
