Lady Writes A Lot By WendyKopulchu Updated Oct 21

Writing help from an English/Creative Writing major. This is practically a free writing class. It's full of useful writing tips and tricks that I've picked up in my writing career/ common mistakes found while editing others' work (I edit two different literary magazines for undergraduates). I hope you can find use out of this. I add to it every time I think of something else that beginners would find useful. 
These are in no particular order, so feel free to refer to the Table of Contents to skip to a topic that you're interested in.

Please vote for this so more people will see it and be able to use this! 
Also, if you have any questions about writing, comment or message me and I'll help. I'll also add chapters at your request. If there's a particular aspect of writing you'd like advice on, I'll post it. It's marked as completed, but I add to it when I think of something else.
