Our dear friend Bill Holland has given us the next installment. Just 3 more to go. https://hubpages.com/literature/The-Wri … llment-397
This was a wonderful mailbag with great questions and answers, Bill. We are fast coming to an end of the series. You will be missed at HP. Hopefully, we will stay in touch. Happy Monday and wish you a great start to the week.
Thank you, Linda, for sharing Bill's mailbag.
Thank you dear friend. It was a thrill to meet you in person, and it is an honor to call myself your friend, Linda!
This is another interesting Mailbag, Bill. It is hard to believe we are coming to the end of a era. I have always looked forward to your Monday articles. I agree that Hubpages haas changed and we have to work harder to feel that feel of belonging to a community.
thanks for posting Bill's article, Linda.
You are one of the people that Bill has met in person! You are lucky, Linda. I responded on his FB page that if he ever travels to Houston, it would be great to be able to meet in person. It is hard to believe that this Mailbag series is coming to an end. I am sure that many people are going to miss it. It will be fun, however, to see where his travels take him!
The mailbag series helped a lot, dear Mr. Billybuc. The support and guidance given by you all form a base and platform of confidence for new contributors in HubPages. I am sad to know there will be only three more but I am also happy to know that you will be out travelling and exploring thereafter. Sounds like a lot of fun!
As for this particular mailbag, I found the tips you gave on how to create and hold on to suspense in stories and novels, very interesting and helpful. Though I don’t write stories, I do wish to work on some soon and I will surely remember your tips. Thank you for the wonderful mailbag series. Stay blessed always...
Thank you for sharing the link Linda.
Bill, I enjoyed the questions and answers, especially the one about keeping tension in your stories, and if it was worth writing on HP to further one’s writing career.
I know the mailbags are nearing an end, and that is sad.
I would have enjoyed meeting you too my friend, but if that new trailer of yours can be driven across the water feel free to drop by anytime
Happy Monday Bill. It is hard to imagine Mondays without the mailbag. But it is nice to know you will be around to help and guide new writers always. Very interesting questions and answers in this mailbag. Especially the one on keeping the tension in a story. Quite helpful tips. Looking forward to reading about your adventures, when you start your journey in the new RV. Have a great week ahead.
Another great mailbag!
It's going to be different not reading your words on Mondays.
It always seems like your sitting right there in front of me talking like we're old friends.
I'm happy you get this chance in life to travel. There's no better feeling.
Maybe if you get this far, I'll holler at you, but Ohio is quite a stretch.
I love how you gave examples to keep the tension alive in our writing.
As far as HP...well, the community is still alive and kicking.
There is a great bunch of people here who will help guide you in the right direction. So, it's worth it.
Plus it's an author page you can share with family, friends and social groups.
But like you say, hit the pavement. Always send your work out & try to get published if you are thinking of a career.
Marketing is a plus too.
Which reminds me...you have written a book that can help writer's along this path.
"The Ultimate Guide To Writing"

Have a great week Bill.
Thanks for the book plug, Brenda. Like all of my other books, it sold poorly but felt good to write.
We want to travel to Vermont, so I'm pretty sure Ohio is on the way. Never say never.
I just don't want people pinning all of their hopes on HP for supplemental income and recognition. Without getting your hands dirty and doing the necessary self-promotion, HP will not produce the results most are seeking from it.
Happy Tuesday to you! You are now one of the leaders of the HP community. Treat it well!
Another wonderful mailbag, Bill. I am excited to see where your travels take you and look forward to you possibly visiting New England. No matter where you go I’m sure it will be an adventure. Are there any particular places you want to see? Perhaps some of the National Parks?
Bill, truthfully, our first step is to find out if we like traveling with a trailer/RV. Maybe we will hate it. We are going to start with a series of short trips, two days, maybe three, see what we think of it. If that goes well we will expand. Eventually I would love to show Bev where I lived in Vermont, and she's never seen D.C. either, which is a must.
Hi Bill, I hope you'll have as much fun as my Clint and I in our little Scotty with Petie our little dog in 1990s. We traveled the mountains starting with South Carolina ending in Tennessee and visited my Native American friends. We looked like a Flea mobile in our little Scotty next to all the big RVs--but we had the best time.
Finally got around to reading a Mailbag, now only two more to go to catch up. So only three more Mailbags. Are you stopping at 400 or will there be more as you go? Kind of got used to the Mailbag being as sure as death and taxes. So, if you ever make it to Arkansas, the KOA Campground in North Little Rock is the best place to park your camper. It's conveniently located about a mile off I-40, and guess what? About a mile from my house up on top of the hill. Just give me a call, and I'll come running to meet you. I would love to meet you and Bev in person. Message me on Facebook for my phone number if you come this way. I think if you see how beautiful Arkansas is, you'll know why I loved visiting Seattle so much. There's a lot to compare.
MizB, no more Mailbags after 400. The time has come for me to wrap up my daily participation on this site. I have bigger fish to fry. For sure, if we ever make it to Arkansas, you will be the first person I call. Probably the only person I call, but why ruin the spirit of the statement. LOL
Bill, I was trying to to you since Monday. Very interesting that you'll soon try another field. I wish you the best and thanks for visiting my Abortion Doctor...I'll connect with you on face and keep in touch.
