    Was this publisher "in Denmark?" because I smell something rotten in this offer.

    Discrimination In The Writing World

    This is so true. We write because God calls us to it. When I get down on myself and think of giving up, God reminds me that it is He who has called and equipped me to write.
  3. When Grammarly and I have a difference of opinion, and I am right. I click the area with the trash can (ignore.) It saves me a lot of grief.
  4. Please explain this term to me? Or do you mean medieval.?
  5. Carolina is right. If you are writing a romance, I like the red truck picture that Lynn found. Actually. I don't think you could go wrong with any of the ones showing a young man and woman who are in love. Just my two-cents worth.

    Don't Write A Bio, Write A "why Me?"

    I realize Bob Hostetler is making a point about the 'bio.' In his example of that bio, he includes things that we know we shouldn't. I heard him speak last year and know he wrote this 'bio' in this way to make a point. I would not include that I've never published a book before and that my husband and our friends like it. The "Why Me" paragraph is more inviting. It piques my interest.

    How & Why To Skip Time In Your Novel

    When I was in a writing group, we talked about this one night. When you see a break in print with a symbol in the middle of the page, that signifies a break in time or a break in place. I hope this helps.
  8. Interesting, very interesting.

    8 Lists Of Publishers

    Strange you should say that. We really don't have any bookstore that I am aware of. The closest place would be in the next county, twenty miles east of where we live. I have learned to do online shopping. The closest thing to a bookstore would be the book section at Walmart.

    8 Lists Of Publishers

    I went through the list of Children's Book Publishers, then Christian Book Publishers. I am looking for a Christian Children's book publisher for a picture book. I really need to pray about the decision to whom I will submit.

    4 Beginner Web Design Mistakes

    I just designed my new website. I tried to make it appealing to the eye. One of my writing friends even described it as minimalist. I was thankful she told me that. I had to change a few things already and you are right, We do learn as we go,

    Writing Contest Deadline July 27 ~ Monetary Prize

    Just seeing this on Wednesday. I notice the groups always seem to wait until the last week or so and, then, send out announcements. This always bothers me..
