New vlog: Novel Writing 101 - How to Write a Book!

In which I share my writing process, best creative tips, what writing software I use, and why I always write from an outline. Happy writing (especially for y’all participating in Camp NaNoWriMo)!

This vlog was inspired by the writing advice of John Green, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Veronica Roth, and Suzanne Collins. If you enjoy it, feel free to reblog with your own best writing tips. I’m always looking to improve! :D
