Anxiety makes you feel so not fine.

Stanley, the main character of my next middle-grade novel (due out Feb 6, 2018), has anxiety. He talks about worry escalating in a cascade of potentially catastrophic scenarios that appear in his head like the rapidly-growing branches of Groot, the instantly-growing tree-creature in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Stanley’s character was super easy for me to write. I’m an expert at concocting a cascade of potentially catastrophic scenarios for myself. I’m a worry-warrior, and always have been. As a child, I was pretty much afraid and worried about everything.

I came across an excellent article from the Child Mind Institute today, about what to do to help, when a child is anxious. You can find the linkHERE.
