In this episode, the two Matts go on a flashback to the first writters of the Paleolithic era, mispronounce the Vocabulary Vitamin of the Month, go into long tangents about intellectual property ownership, and talk about writing for middle grade in the next of our set about different age demographics. What can you get away with when writing for this slightly older audience? What is the difference between this and young adult? When is the right time to bring up certain issues? When will Matt Donald implement the title and cover changes for his Megazoic books? We discuss it all, with backwards hats and loose-fitting pants because that's totally how middle grade kids nowadays dress, and talk about Harry Potter, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dinoverse, and Thomas the Tank Engine for some reason.
