"Excellent article. It's amazing how many of the so called essentials of life turn out not to be so essential when you have less money. I've got long hair with silver running through it, too"

"I agree with you, I like descriptions only when they add to the understanding of character or give insight into the time and place they're living in. Too much description is tedious."

I always make it clear in my rejection letter that they should wait six months before re-sending and it's made clear in the submission guidelines too (…See More

Welcome to the novelist group, Juliet. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

Meg
