Re: Real Life Research Helpers

Hey hawk, this is a wonderful idea! I can offer knowledge about life across the pond, I suppose. Ask me about England or schooling in England, heck, even what we eat in England. If any of your characters came from this side of the ocean, I’ll help you work on their linguistics! On expert knowledge, ...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Welcome aboard, Pumpkin! I've always been in the camp that until you've mastered the short story, you cannot master the novel. As Orson Scott Card says, a novel is just a series of short stories tied together. Win this contest, and you'll have the skills in place to write a successful novel, as so ...

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Welcome aboard Pumpkin! I'm new here as well, but you've come to the right place. It is definitely fine to enter from England; I dunno about british english, but I suspect it's fine.
