Today, we’re doing something different. Most of you know, I’m a writer. And I’m working on my first novel, hoping to have it done within the next few months. (Fingers crossed!)
Well, there’s a great deal of learning to do at the beginning, as I’m sure most of you can agree with. SO I am using today to ASK QUESTIONS. These, of course, aren’t only for me. But this will help anyone just starting out. And hopefully, you’ll have fun with it!! :) You’ll find the questions below. Answer as many as you would like in the comments section. As I said, this *I’m certain* will benefit not only me, but many of us new writers. So thank you!!! :)
And, as always, thanks for stopping by and showing your support!!
