Forum: Basic Writing Questions

Basic Writing Questions (BWQs) are perennial questions asked by writers when theyíre just getting started, or when they reach a new stage. Theyíre usually general in nature rather than about a specific plot element, and include questions about how to write, what to write, or even why to write one way or another. This is not a crit forum. Check the Introduction and the other Stickies.
