“How to Avoid Parenting Your Characters” in the Writer’s Digest Newsletter

Warning: Happy Dance in progress.

I was a little confused yesterday morning when I opened one of my e-mails.

(I’m paraphrasing here.)

“Really liked your article, How to Avoid Parenting Your Characters, from Writer’s Digest newsletter. Thank you!”

How had I missed that?  Simple, it was in the same batch of messages.

So two pieces of good news.

I’m not loosing my mind (or at least this wasn’t a symptom).

My article, “How to Avoid Parenting Your Characters,” was the headline piece in the 11/1/2011 Writer’s Digest e-mail newsletter.  You can read the article here.

Now to take my joy, joy happy feelings and go add three pages to my middle grade!
