May Midgrade Madness, anyone?

I must admit. I’m still on the fence with this challenge because I have a midgrade to rewrite by June, another midgrade to finish, a young adult I’d like to write by August, a monster to-do list, and a kid getting major surgery soon. Plate full, y’all, real full.

On the other hand … part of me thinks this is just fear, doubt, and resistance talking, those evil little boogers. Plate full of BS, y’all, real BS.

So whatever. I’m in. My challenge dates are May 26 – 28. Lord be with me.

What about you? Have you joined our May Midgrade Madness Facebook group yet? If not, pop on over and let’s get the party started. And remember, for those who complete the challenge, you will receive a free 10-20 page critique by a PAL member.

KateWe will also randomly select a grand prize winner who will receive … dum, dum, dum, DUM … a free, 20-page critique from Kate Angelella, the fabulous freelance editor who spoke at our March conference!

* For those not tackling the challenge, Kate is available for freelance editing! Go here for more information.

So come join us! Don’t let those evil little boogers hold you back. And if you need some last-minute plotting advice, Kara Laughlin has also been posting up a storm on the Facebook page! Some of which I will be sharing here tomorrow.

Stay tuned and best of luck to whose who are participating!



About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
