The hardest thing can be 1) Finding the time 2) Putting pen to paper. There’s nothing worse than staring at a blank piece of paper, worrying that you can’t spell. Not all writers are spelling bees. So grab your note book, iPad, tablet, phone whatever the tools of your trade. Create a review and send over to Doncopolitan@gmail.com.
