Ask The Expert

An email from a woman that had been a writer but had put it aside for many years and was trying to get back to that place where she could begin writing again.

My advise was to look into writing groups or take a class that will give her a deadline for completing some writing activity so she can ease back into it but add accountability to get it done.
