I've been digging through some of Terri DelCampo's posts on her many blogs. This one I took from her Write Now with Terri DelCampo blog. I have the link above. Terri writes many non-fiction posts as well as her horror fiction. Of course, I post a number of her children's stories here. They're free, and people like them. But her other tips are very helpful for any number of people. I'm more hard-headed than Terri and have less patience than her. So, many of her posts will resonate better with most people than mine.
