Thanks for the feed back.  This may seem pretty basic but when you say tightening what exactly does that mean?  Is it too wordy?  I am new at this which I suppose is fairly obvious.  I like the idea of a critique group.  Any suggestions as to how to find one?  Thanks for all the help!

Kate, Margot said it all. While I found the post interesting, it did need tightening.

Kate, your article certainly has enough "meat' in it for a terrific mid-grade novel. As an article, it needs some tightening of the wordiness and focus.  If you want to write, I suggest you join a good critique group, with advanced members who write for the same age as you. The comments, suggestions and support from such a group will prove invaluable. And reading the MS of others is also a great way to learn.  It takes time, lots or rewrites and experience to become a published author.  Use your blog as a way to practice writing tight and terrific, while keeping your focus on the main theme.  And remember that determination, patience and talent, plus a little luck, is what finally gets you published!!

Been away for a while and just began blogging again yesterday.  Would like to invite you to read the post on my third published book, Trisha's Treasures.  It's quite a gem of a read, at least that's what I've heard.  Looking forward to your comments.
