It's been a while since I did an "ask me" lesson, and since I was too busy this week to write a new lesson, this is a good time for another one. So go ahead--ask away. These are the hats I've worn that might lead to a question or two:
1. I wrote for the Writing Challenge for almost six years, and won many ECs and even placed in a few Best of the Best competitions.
2. I've been a judge for the Writing Challenge many, many times.
3. I taught high school English for thirty years--mostly as a teacher of learning disabled students, but also for several years in regular high school English classes.
4. I've been a free-lance editor for almost five years.
5. I'm an amateur grammarian and language-lover.
6. I'm a wife, mother, and grandmother with experience with children and grandchildren with disabilities. I have experience with depression, both my own and that of family members. I've been a Christian for over 50 years.
I'd love to answer your questions in any of those areas. If I don't know an answer, I'll find it for you, or refer you to someone who does.
I can't answer questions about agents or publishers or self-publishing; those are areas where I'm blissfully ignorant.
ALSO--This would be a good time to suggest ideas for future lessons, please.
ANOTHER ALSO--Don't forget to put new items in the critique circle for detailed critique. Here's a link: http://www.faithwriters.com/critique-circle.php
