Ask me anything
I don’t mind answering questions about writing. Okay, let’s be honest, I’ll answer questions about almost anything. If I don’t provide an answer, it’s for a good reason.
If you have a question, please feel free to use my ask.fm account to ask me a question. I’ll answer it there as well as post it below if it’s something i want everyone on this site to read.

Questions below are most recently asked first.
Read what you write out loud. If it doesn’t flow well when read out loud, it won’t flow well when read quietly either.
Look for words or phrases that you repeat frequently and remove them completely or find better words to use in their place.
Spellcheck. Spellcheck. Spellcheck.
Most importantly, to become a good writer, you have to read. A lot. Be sure to read in the genre you’re writing for, but also anything else that interests you.
Eliminate redundancies. So often people will describe something twice, just using different words. Pick one, get rid of the other.
Get rid of useless words. Very, really, several, etc. do nothing for when describing something. They don’t quantify anything.
Hope that helps.
