Ask A Question!

This is the place where you can submit a question about writing for a thorough answer in its own post. If you want to ask a shorter question that doesn’t concern writing, or is specific to your story, there’s a page called “ask questions” and there’s a separate form. 

Please check the list of previously answered questions before sending a new one. If your question is not answered within two weeks, it was either:

  • Too specific to your own story
  • Individually researchable
  • or Previously answered

If your question has been somewhat answered in another post but has not been covered in its entirety, please feel free to let me know in the message section of the form below, and I’ll specifically focus on that topic. Thank you!
