Thank you all for your words of advice!
To Betsyandthe Five Avengers: I decided to persue writing as a career because I've always liked reading, and it's something I'd like to try my hand at. And I like to read...well, anything. I'd like to write anything, too. Well, nearly
There are 4 things I will NEVER
write about: 1-Anything too gory and sadistic. 2-Horror. 3-Religion (it's too contraversital). 4-Politics.
To Five X: Thank you for your kind offer, but I am happy with Wordpad. I do have one question, though: does anyone know how many Kilo Bites
equal one page? I ask because Wordpad doesn't show the number of pages you've used.
And there's something else I'd like to know. When one is on welfare benefits, the benefits stop if they get a proper job. What I would like to now is: if an author is on welfare benefits when they are starting out, can they continue to claim benefits, since their work isn't going to earn much money at first?
Just one more thing - if I was to write a children's story, would I need to add pictures or would I need to explain where I'd like the pictures to be, and what I'd like the pictures to be OF? And (regardless of age group) apart from chapter headings, would I need to do anything else to make it clear where one chapter ends and another begins? Or is all that something for the editors to figure out when they edit the book?
