Don't expect your writing to be perfect. Give yourself permission to write poorly. Just get the words down. You can and should go back and rewrite, often many times. You may not sell your first work.

By June Shaw

I had never written a novel in less than a year--until recently.

The first book I wrote took two or three years, and it collects dust. It was fun. It was exciting. It was awful.

I'm so happy to, Beth. And now that I'm here, I'll need to learn what to do. I've donated most of the books I've read. Wish I still had them here to put up information about them.
