1. How many words should my novel be?
2. I have a great idea for a story, how do I find an agent?
3. I’ve written four chapters now, can you advise me on how I write a query?
4. Is there a market for… (insert genre)?
5. I have so many ideas, I don’t have writer’s block. I just can’t decide which one to write. What should I do?
6. Should I write a certain amount of words every day? How many?
7. How much money will I earn?
8. How long will it take to get an agent/publisher if I start sending queries now?
9. Do I have to write the full book before I try to get an agent?
10. Which writing software do you use and recommend?
See, these questions are a little different; some are common sense. I know that before you start looking for agents, you need to actually finish the book (or so I've heard). And I know how much money you'll earn...we can't all be J.K. Rowling of course. But some of the questions, well I'm curious to see what other writers will say! You can read the original article HERE.
Well, the flow is still going nicely. I'm up to 70 pages! That's not too shabby. But it's getting in the more difficult areas of the novel, so my flow might be slowing down a little. I definitely outlined; actually wrote a backstory that was almost 100 pages. But it's just so much information.
Here is a picture of my flow though - from Instagram:

Oh and one other thing, have you heard of Amanda Hocking? Yea, she's great! Sold over a million on amazon as a self-publisher. She was charging her books .99 cents! Amazing. She actually wrote me an email once...writing advice before she was famous, so it's something I'll treasure. Her writing has definitely gotten better! I just bought her book, WAKE. Pretty intriguing right now; I must say!

Have a great Wednesday folks!
