Where is "The End" of a story, of a poem, or a novel? Let's talk about finishing that piece of writing you've been working on.
As a writer, you should start a blog, but you may be asking yourself if it's worth it. Well, it definitely is, and let's talk about why.

I use it for my outlines, for my character sheets, for my second/third/fourth/fifth drafts, and for major rewrites.
