Long-time newspaper reporter, news and features, columnist and currently freelance writer. Have written an erotic novel that I can't seem to move or finish editing (I always get stuck in the first five or so chapters, retweeking). I know the elements of good writing and am a stickler for the mechanics, generally speaking. I want to get to the next level, get my novel published even if self-published, but am very limited in financial resources and confidence. So much I do not know that I need help learning! I have a good eye for editing, precise word choice and am willing to provide positive and constructive feedback to others.
