Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and need help with just about everything. I've been writing on and off for years but can't seem to maintain any kind of momentum or motivation. So I'm going to go about it differently this time.....I'm asking for help when I need it and reading, reading, reading, everything I can get my hands on about developing characters, setting, plot development, outlining my novel.....etc. I'm doing it BY THE BOOK this time (no pun intended). I'm looking forward to becoming an active member of this forum and giving as well as receiving writing guidance and advice.......Thanks !
