Here comes the question you must answer to be entered in today’s giveaway.
If you are new to the giveaway, please read “Da Rules.” Seriously, there’s a few picky things (like we will only ship to U.S. addresses) and if you break a rule I have to disqualify your comment (and I hate when that happens because it ruins all my fun).
Today’s question is…
When you were a beginning writer, or if you are a beginning writer, what was/is your most nagging, worrisome question about launching a writing career? Feel free to speak openly and honestly. We’re all friends here. 🙂
Before you go! We have a cause to raise money for this year. Please consider making a small contribution at some point during the giveaway. Read the whole story about the Applin family here.
And don’t forget to read the rules! Several posts had to be deleted…ack!
