Hi. I really like this blog. It has helped me a lot. I am struggling a bit as a writer. I started out being a fan fiction writer who solely wrote in first person but now I want to expand. I want to write a college romance in third person but I am not sure how to get started. Can you please give me some advice? How can I make the transition from first to third person?

Hi, hope you’re doing well! I had a question about chapter length. I want to be a writer someday in the future, so I started writing fanfiction to get the feel of it. My chapters are usually 2,000 ish words each, and I’m scared that I’m not reaching the word count for a decent sized novel. Any tips or suggestions?
