Leodegraunce: What are some of your writing plans for the remainder of 2012?

Leodegraunce: What is your top writing tip for aspiring authors?
Michelle Mccall: To just get the words down on paper (or the computer screen.) That's the first step, the most important step, but one that is so easy to ignore. No one will ever know about the stories in your head if you don't write them down.
