    Have a question? Ask “The Teacher”; see answers on Tuesdays.
    We’ll show you our updates on Works in Progress, if you’ll show us yours—look for us on Wednesdays.
    Thursdays are reserved for random rambling—any topic, in short form.
    We’ll spotlight friends on Fridays through interviews and guest blogs.
    Ready to relax over the weekend? We’ll share books you might enjoy on Saturdays.

    What a great blog I can’t wait to see what you all do with it. I have some questions for the teacher!
    1. My story is in third person. For the most part I’d like the story to be from my main characters perspective but is it ever ok to hear someone else’s thoughts or get their pov in the story? Or does it interrupt the flow?

    2. Is there a certain guideline as to how many words are in a chapter? How many words make up a novel? I know nanowrimo is 50,000 but is that standard?
    Hope you don’t mind me filling up your blog with my endless questions. You might have to unfollow me:)

  2. Thanks, Maren, for the good questions – I’ll be answering them on the next
