I am halfway or better through my latest project. It's been a lot of fun to switch genres and play with kids stories. The research is the best part. While I write, I have been reading middle grade stories, researching the place, the weather, the science and what the grade levels learning goals are. I have immersed myself in 5th and 6th grade. Meanwhile my plucky hero is certain a mystery is afoot in his fabulous new world.
(Woke up sick today, so am on cold and flu meds... does it show? ;)) Cheers!
