I asked for some reader questions, and the responses flooded in. Thank you, everyone who told me your questions about writing and editing. If you haven’t asked me anything yet, feel free to scroll down and do that in the comments. Everyone is welcome to ask questions anytime, not just on this post.
Here are some of the questions about writing and editing I received that day. As I publish a post answering a question, I’ll link to it from this post. You might want to bookmark/favorite this post to make it easy to come back to it, where all of these will be.
