AN ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT MY MOTHER

I've tried to avoid doing this, hoping that by ignoring my mother's attempts to intimidate and harass, she would stop, but it's reached the point where I feel I must warn people about her. I also want to stand up for myself:  Nothing I've written about my mother is...

Social Media For Writers

A couple of weeks ago, I asked you to send me your questions about social media. I received quite a few, too many to answer all in one post, so I chose the questions that seemed to have the broadest appeal. As you'll see, my answers are lengthy as I've tried to write...
