For example, I'm submitting a Middle Grade book and I've published a highly technical research paper in a peer-reviewed scientific journal - not at all related to each other. I've also published blogs and online magazine articles. I've published writing, but nothing that's fiction let alone Children's fiction.

So, should I include those other things I've published or just write Not Applicable?

List 'em. Don't list minor things (letters to the editor, etc.) and don't list more than a page or so, at MOST.
