I have the worst time taking a break from writing. I can never imagine writers who retire. Jesus Christ I'd have too much time.

Hey AQCers, I'm looking to pick your brains for blog posts. :-) What writing/publishing questions would you like to see in a blog? Any grammar issues you consistently struggle with or always have to look up? Let me know!
D. E. JacksonI really liked the Goodreads author questions. :)

AightballSemi-colons would be good, I struggle with those. Lay, Lie, Lain came up recently with my friend and I (and we still don't know which one to use when!)...stuff like that would be good.

I'm looking for someone to swap first chapters with me in the Wanted Ads thread, if anyone is interested!
Struggling with that pesky query? Check out my blog series, Quite The Query for examples of successful queries that connected writers to their agents: https://chasingthecrazies.wordpress.com/quite-the-query/
How about referring me to some winner queries for memoir/creative nonfiction? Thanks.
Why am I so terrible at pitches? The more I work on this the worse I feel like I'm getting at it.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me with my query. I plan to start sending them out within a few weeks.
