Needed: Questions with short answers!
I need your questions! Want to know the three ways to join clauses? Want to know how often and long I absolutely think you should write? How many people I've banned from my Facebook page? What time of day I think is best for writing? My favorite writing book?
Now's your chance to ask all those random questions that you weren't sure I'd pick for a full on mailbox post!
I'm going to be doing a series of posts over the next few weeks while I'm teaching summer school during the day. The mechanics will be "Twenty Questions," and they should be entertaining, but a little easier for me to write than your typical post, since most of the actual POST will be your questions.
Themes for the 20 questions posts will be Meta, Personal, Process, Craft, Blogging, Publishing, Basics, Social Media (FB!), Reading/Books, "My Philosophy of Writing," Grammar, and Social Justice Bard.
Of course if you feel like a question doesn't fit neatly into one of these themes, ask away! I'll either find a place for it or do a Miscellaneous one at the end.
If you want to ask a question anonymously or without your full name and FB info being attached to it, feel free to send this page a message or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org but be sure to include "20 Questions" and the Theme you think your question should fall under.
If your questions get a little too big for our short "20 Questions" posts, I'll tuck them away for a longer mailbox later.
