Tips For Getting Girls Into Sports

Would it surprise you to know that girls are twice as likely to drop out of sporting activities through their teenage years than boys? Or to realize that most young girls start engaging in organized sports up to two whole years later than boys? …

THanks Margot!

I love hearing things like that.  This is actually the second ms I've written but the first was just to prove I could do I think.  Now I am really working at it.


I also agree with the critique group.  I would join except I am already a member of three small ones and I don't know that I could do another...I wish because I love as much help as I can get with my writing.

Keep at it, mate.  It is writers who stick with it that eventually become published authors.

You know, if some of you here are serious about writing, you could join together and form a private critique group.  Feedback from other writers is a great way to prune out weaknesses and beef up characters.  And the support from other writers is a great plus.

I do suggest that picture book writers stick together.  Writing them is a whole other game from YA and MG.  Think about it.

Still in the writing stage.  About 2/3 of the way through.

Wow Deana.  It sounds thrilling.  Are you still in the writing stage, or are you polishing it up for publication?

Margot - thanks again, you are so supportive, I totally appreciate you!!
Comment by Deana Barnhart on April 21, 2011 at 6:07pm

Margot, it is a YA Urban Fantasy novel.  Isn't it funny whenever you are asked to explain something you draw a blank:)  I will give you the tiny blurb on my blog about it...

Mackenzie Shae discovers her destiny is unlike most seventeen year olds when she turns a guardian angel into a human with the mere touch of her hand. How will she cope when she realizes she has stripped her only protector of his abilities in a time when she is being hunted by the evils of this world and the one beyond?


I entered the first 312 words into a contest and won third for it.  You can find that here if you want to check it out:)

Welcome back Deana.  Tell us about your novel.  Is it for adults or kid?

Hey fellow writers!  I haven't been around in awhile but I am back and really trying to focus on my novel and blogging.  Feel free to stop by...the blog not the novel:)

Peryl, your article on boys is great.  I Facebooked and Tweeted it.

Are your boys an enigma, wrapped in bacon dressed up in Power Ranger costumes?? I have a new article up at Momtastic Magazine - Mysteries of Little Boys. I'd be thrilled if you drop by and leave me a note about the mystery of your little boys (or girls!) - and promise to immediately return the favor:).
