How to Receive Feedback on Your Writing

I’m obsessed with writing group posts this month. The good news?

Why Sell My Short Stories Online?

How long have I known I wanted to be a writer? I can trace it back to Mrs. Shea’s fourth grade class when she gave us a short story assignment. As I sat at my desk drafting the piece, first in pencil and then rewriting it in ink (no computers back then), I knew. As […]
