Happy OneNote User0000 ,

A no-nonsense writing advice podcast

My dad recommended that I check out WriterDojo when I expressed interest in writng short stories. The advice that Steve and Larry give is really valuable, but the way they give it is what makes this podcast a real gem. The practical and no-nonsense approach they take has helped e become a better writer and will hopefully help me go on to publish some books. Whether I do publish or not, these two know what they're talking about and give solid advice that this amateur writing really appreciates.

Excellent information

So I have loved the MHI books for a long time and when I stumbled across this I was ecstatic. I have always wanted to be a writer and just felt like I didn’t know where to start. This podcast not only helps but gives GREAT advice so you dont get taken advantage of. I’m looking forward to putting this advice into practice! Also TAXATION IS THEFT❤️
