What is #TestWriter?


From “11 Blogs by Charlotte Writers Worth Reading”: “‘Writing Though Career Transitions’ started as a way for Y.M. Nelson to deal with a job layoff and her pursuit of a successful creative writing career. The blog has since blossomed into a resource for all things writing related.”
