Hello all my wonderful followers and random people reading this blog! Today is Ask the Writer Monday. The purpose is to encourage all of you to ask whatever writing questions you have. Of course, if you ever have any questions to ask, feel free to ask them at any time. However, this feature tries to make Monday seem special (instead of dreaded).
Of course, the only questions I will answer will have to be writing related. For example: grammar, plot, character development, writer’s block, etc. Anything non-writing related will be ignored. I will also post any questions asked for others to read, but copy and paste them into a new post in order to keep everyone anonymous.
I will answer each question within 24-48 hours, depending on how many questions I receive. Also, if I cannot answer a question because it is about a topic I do not have experience with, then I will at least make sure to offer up resources where someone can find an answer.
I will answer your writing questions to the best of my abilities, but if I cannot help you, hopefully some of the other readers of this blog can help. So, ask away!
Write about someone who has the option to go wherever they want. Are they a hitchhiker, someone with a lot of money, or just someone who wants to take off? Where do they decide to go? What adventures do they have there? Give them a story with interesting twists and turns.
