Hi Lee! I’m really enjoying all the words of wisdom over at the WNP. I’m trying to limit my postings and questions, however, so as not to wear out my welcome.:) It’s such a wealth of information for a new writer like me.

Hope all is going well for you!


Gillian, I’m so glad you’re enjoying the WNP’s blog. You might be a newbie, but you write like a pro!
