Hey everyone! I know that it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I’m spending a lot of my blogging time over at the WFPS page.
It is updated every weekday with things like writing prompts (1), challenges (2), advice (3), tips (4), and inspiration (5). There’s also a monthly writing contest (6), writing resources (7), and I’m over there talking about writing and sending out my inspiring writery vibes (8).
Yup, that’s 8 reasons why you should follow the WFPS page. Don’t you feel lucky? You got an extra 3 reasons out of the deal.
See y’all over there.

This is a post that I wrote up for my writer’s group. Take a look-see and visit our page to participate:
Are you having trouble writing? Do you have a grammar question or a formatting question? Are you having problems starting your story? Do you have some general plot questions? Are you having issues with a specific scene?
If you have a writing related question (or anything at all) please feel free to e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will answer your questions in a public post on our website. Make sure to put the phrase “Ask A Writer For Pete’s Sake” in the subject line. It’ll help us sort your questions out of the SPAM folder.
So why should you ask us?
#1) We’re friendly and will help as much as we can. I don’t mean to toot our own horn but we are a nice, accepting, diverse bunch.
#2) We won’t make fun of you or mock you. Don’t worry about asking a “dumb” question because there is no such thing. If you are having issues with something, chances are someone else is having that same issue.
#3) All of the writers here at WFPS write in different genres and have different areas of expertise so when we get together we form a Power Ranger Robot of Writing Knowledge. It’s quite magnificent. Grammarzilla better beware.
#4) We’re always looking to help our fellow writers. We love to help.
#5) This is a “for the love” project. We’re not asking for money (yep, we’ll help you for free!).
So ask away and watch the site for your answer.

Elmore Leonard passed away earlier this week. My heart swells whenever we lose honest, talented men and women. I always hope that we can do justice to the literary world like the legends before us. We are the next generation. We have to learn from those before us and make sure that we pass on that knowledge and talent. But I digress…
Anyway, I thought I would share this “article” posted on Buzzfeed in honor of him. They are good lessons and ones that we should all know as writers.
