My apologies for being late with this blog post.
I thought we could share some great advice with each other this week.
What is the best writing advice you've ever received?
Mine is, "Keep moving forward."
I think Jodi Picoult said something about, "You can't edit a blank page."
And of course, "Do or do not. There is no try." from Yoda.
Let's hear some stunning advice that's been shared with you!
Guidelines and rules:
Word count: 5000-6000

What is Sweet/Clean Romance: overall, your story should be clean of offensive material, including profanity, vulgarity, excessive violence, or sexually explicit or suggestive scenes.
Elements in your story should focus on romance, not on sex, which should be kept “behind closed doors.”
The overall plot should lead to a positive and uplifting outcome, also known as "happily ever after."
Absolutely no erotica or pornography.
