MG vs. YA

Check out this blog
My favorite quote is:
The easiest way to define this is--in MG, you get to save the world. In YA, you don't.
so true....

I was a bit tired the other day and thinking I need a bit of inspiration. As I thought about this, it came to me that inspiration can come from anywhere. I look to friends, books, pictures, etc. For me when I start writing, I pick up a little thing that reminds me of the book. In one case  a small figurine from an antique shop, another was a photo from where I grew up as a child. The key is to stay inspired. Do what it takes. Be inspired.
