My post today is brief because you're going to learn a lot from following this link to Wanda Shapiro's (@WandaShapiro on Twitter) fantastic blog.
Wanda is self-publishing her book, SOMETIMES THAT HAPPENS WITH CHICKEN. Her approach is very studied and worthy of emulation.
So please check out One Girl One Novel at: http://www.onegirlonenovel.com/index.php/the-plan/
All the best to you, Wanda.
