  1. I enjoyed browsing your blog site. It’s a pleasure knowing you. Perhaps you can join me with an interview on my newly created Young Reader’s Book Corner blog, also a wordpress site.

    • Hi Walt. The only info on my site that needs a password is the page that is accessed by people on my mailing list. I sometimes put extras there for them. Is that where you are stuck? The mailing list sign up is in the box on the right side of the page.

  2. I am on the mailing list, so I got an email today about a free item but it is asking for a password and I don’t remember getting any password.

  3. Hi!
    We are readying students here for end of year assessments, and one of the things I’d like to get some help with is the writing of creative story endings…do you happen to have or know of any resources for this type of writing? Basically, the students will see a few paragraphs up to several pages of text, then have to come up with a superb end of the story.
    thanks in advance!

    • Here are some tips that I suggest to writers:
      Don’t have your character wake up from a dream. Readers feel cheated.
      Keep it short. The most exciting part of the story is over. It’s time to wrap it up.
      End with the main character and how the character has changed because of the experiences in your story.
      Can you use your opening sentence again or a significant line of dialogue to end your story?
      Make sure your ending resolves the main conflict of the story.
      The ending should have an emotional impact on the reader. It could end with a joke or a sigh, but the reader’s emotions are involved in some way.

  4. I recently purchased your book Writing Fiction: A Hands-On Guide for teens. I am in the process of writing a young adult baseball story. I was wondering if you could give a look at what I have so far or if you could provide me with some tips or help. I wanted to tell you how much I love your guide. I think it’s an impressive piece of work and it has definitely helped me understand the genre. Your website as well is a tremendous source of information and resources for writing. Thank you for all that you do.
