Anonymous asked: Hey, I’m writing a story about a family through the years and the family is quite big (think Weasley to the power of 10) so it’s hard to physically write out. Do you know of any free sites that will let you write out a fictional family tree? (Love your blog, by the way :))
Instead of creating a character that can manipulate fire, think about a character who can’t touch fire—now why can’t he? Is there something about his exterior that won’t allow it, or will the fire bring him to Hell?
Hello, writerly friends!
I got a bunch of questions asking for advice on revision/editing (of which I have plenty) so I thought I would make a TOP 5! The above are my top 5 tips for revising/editing your book. I believe there are plenty of awesome resources out there for editing, but I wanted to talk about a few things that are seldom mentioned!

Sept. 17, 1849: Harriet Tubman Attempts to Escape From Slavery
On this day in 1849, American abolitionist Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery. She escaped alongside her brothers, Ben and Henry, who forced her to turn back with them after they had second thoughts.
Tubman ran away again shortly afterward without her brothers, this time successfully, using the Underground Railroad as her escape route to the North.
The Underground Railroad was a lifeline for slaves escaping to freedom, and Harriet Tubman became undoubtedly one of its most famous “conductors.”
