"See, I figure folks got to have someone to love. Someone to look up to. But they got to have someone to hate just as bad. Someone to look down on, to peck at, just like chicken in the yard" #buffalosoldier #tanyalandman #writing #novel #teenagefiction #Indians #slaves #walkerbooksuk

"I felt like I was waiting for something to happen. Which has to be the worst part of being young. So many of your decisions aren't yours; they're made by other people. Sometimes they're made badly by other people. Sometimes they're made by other people who have no idea what the consequences of those decisions might be. The bastards." #patricness #therestofus #childrensrights #beingyoung #youngminds #walkerbooks #sjmliterature @s.j.munday sjmliterature.weebly.com

"What happens to you when you get older? Do you just forget everything from before you turned eighteen? Do you make yourself forget? ... Did he talk himself into not believing it actually happened? ... It's not every adult, I know, but still ... Honestly. Adults. How do they live in the world?" #patricness #therestofusjustlivehere #book #yafiction #comingofage #growingup #childrensrights #childrenarethefuture

"We often envy our children their treasures - growing physical and mental strength, liveliness, joy, material comforts. But above all else, we envy our children their potential ... you don't have to be a parrent to feel this ... When we envy our children we deceive ourselves - we think too little of them and too well of ourselves." #theexaminedlife #stephengrosz #vintage #childrensrights

"People who want to be "free" in the way that you mean it are usually making someone else suffer... you try to act like you are free and easy and cool but it cannot be natural, can it? ... you are trying so hard to pretend to be yourself that you end up being someone else ... I would like you a lot more if you just acted your age." #socksarenotenough #marklowery #roalddhslfunnyprize2013 #scholastic #finishedbook #middlegradefiction

Do my fellow writers and artists agree with this statement? Or do we sometimes need stress and chaos to be creative? #writerproblems #writer #poet #yogitea #chaitea #wisdom #relax #creative #creativewriting

This should be everyones go to novel for anyone who wants their children to learn more about everyday experiences during #worldwar2. Beats the likes of #privatepeaceful and #thebookthief hands down in my opinion. Short, simple, but expertly crafted. #novel #periodnovel #childrensfiction #once. #morrisgleitzman

Had a great workshop/editing session with fellow writer friends in the sun today. Fueled by homemade brownies, plenty of tea, and an abundance of chocolate biscuits of course! #writeratwork #amwriting #editing #workshops

Pleased to announce that my poem 'A Cornish Welcome' appears in the latest issue (39) of international literary journal #thedawntreader. You can buy/subscribe online at #indigodreams publishing. It is true to say that you learn more about your work after seeing it in print, because even now it's out there I want to tweak it and prod it in other directions. #writer #author #poet #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com @s.j.munday

Sat down in the park to glance at the first few pages of my latest book purchase and couldn't stop reading until the chapter was done. I'm well and truly hooked @lawrencepatrice! #orangeboy #patricelawrenc #benchandabook #newbook #hodderchildrensbooks #hodder

My highest rating so far this year for @Kiran_MH's award winning #thegirlofinkandstars. A truley original fast-paced adventure full of mythology, emotions, and action. A story about hope, family, and chasing dreams. #bookreview #awardwinner #fantasy #novel #bookbloger #writer #author #poet #childrensfiction #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com @s.j.munday
