A new advice column — get your writing questions answered!
We get a fair number of e-mails from both kids and adults, asking things like, “How should I start my story?” “What should I write about?” and “If peanut butter cookies are made of peanut butter, what do they make Girl Scout cookies out of?”
We don’t pretend to know all the answers. (But the answers to the questions above are: with a grabber; whatever you’re excited about; and Girl Scouts.)
Since the Writer Guy is a fiction kind of guy, he’ll be answering questions on writing fiction. (And no, he won’t help you write a book report on a book you haven’t read yet – not THAT kind of fiction.) We’ve posted the first question below.
How often will we update this page? Hard to say. Writer Guy is also a lazy — and occasionally busy — kind of guy. He’ll post the answers when he gets around to it.
(Writer Guy reserves the right to fix spelling and punctuation, edit questions, and change names to protect the innocent.)
