Re: Be a Better Writer--Description (Kind Of)

Oh Jan! I just finished playing catch-up on your lessons after a busy two weeks and was sad to see your note a the end! I'm particularly new to faith writers but I must say, your lessons are one the things that have me popping in every day. (I read your lesson on characterization 4 times and learned...

Jan, A few things. First, I read in the judging standards for the weekly challenge, that how you start your piece is important. I try to give this great consideration, but I'm wondering if there are some hard and fast rules for what makes a good opening. Second, have you written a book? I'd be very ...
