  15. I have a queer question, for the fabulous group that is the Go Teen Writers community.... I do not have Facebook, and am extremely lacking in motivation and accountability for my writing. Is there anyone who would be willing to help hold me accountable, and vice versa?

  18. Congratulations to all the finalists.

    I've been feeling rather lost all week without GTW. I really loved this month's newsletter. I'm excited to hear more about the 100 words for 100 days challenge. It sounds like just the thing for me.
