Surveys & Writing North Idaho

    If you're like me, sometimes polls and surveys can seem like a pain in the neck. Especially during a presidential election season, or census year. Yikes ! During the last political  campaign,  it seemed  I was getting something in the mail every other day asking me to answer questions about life , liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
    While I think surveys  can be annoying, I also believe they have purpose in helping to give positive  direction in how to better a product or service. Right about now, you may be wondering what this has to do with Writing North Idaho.  Simply this, WNI has as its purpose to continually improve its content, to provide valuable information for writers about writing. Over the past several years contributors have blogged about writing fiction,non-fiction , memoir and poetry. There have been blogs about query letters and grammar, and examples of how  to write a good  beginning , middle,  and  ending to a story; Also, about  dialogue , description and plot. Contributors have blogged about a variety of  subjects on writing, including essays on authors and books.

    Now WNI would like  to hear from you  regarding   writing  topics  you want  more of , or perhaps something we haven't covered.  For that reason,  in the next few weeks  WNI  will be conducting a survey  asking you   to reply to specific questions  about what you're  interested in, what topic you'd like to learn more about.  There won't be  any prizes or awards for answering the survey questions, only the promise each response will carefully be considered.

   So, please, when Writing North Idaho posts its survey,  take a few minutes to answer our query.  It  will  serve all of us well.

Surveys can help WNI bring the best to its readers. Please tell us what you want to read about....or about what you want to read. Correct grammar? How to publish? How to build a platform?
