I work in PR and as a byproduct get to do quite a bit of editing/writing at work - but it's all nonfiction  articles/speeches/press releases and unfortunately my name doesn't get to byline the articles I write (oh, the joys of ghostwriting!). I absolutely adore my job - but I miss creative writing! Creative nonfiction was my forte back in my not-so-ancient college days, but it's not what I like to read. I'm using Wattpad to practice my fiction skillz. 
      The way I write is that I publish first...edit later. Easier to get the plot out there and then go back and refine the language and other minutia.
      Favorite genres are epic fantasy, PNR, and urban fantasy, but I'll read anything. I'm in search of my reader soulmate who is as diehard a fan of Ilona Andrews as I am.

SallySlater commented on Paladin - Chapter 12

To be honest, I significantly changed around the timelines in my rewritten version (the one I'm publishing - this is a first draft), so I'm a little foggy on the original timeline I had. I think you're onto something that the inciting incident to the first chapter should actually be 6 years apart, not 5 (she goes from 12 to 18, after all).
      Regarding your other question, that I can answer. A Paladin trainee is only at the trainee level for one full year. He is also a prodigy so he's advanced in the ranks (to a leadership position) very quickly.
Hey I was just wondering if you will release the second paladin book on wattpad (probably not but there is always hope) or publish it on Amazon etc yeah thx
