Ray Strait’s March 2020 Writing Tips

March 27, 2020
As you may know by now, the Hemet Public Library is closed until April 30, so the Diamond Valley Writers Guild will not meet this month. However, to keep in touch with our members, we will publish a weekly tip on writing. This week we feature Ray ‘Rusty’ Strait who has 30 published works to his credit. He is also 95 years old and going strong. He’s the youngest 95 I’ve ever met.  Here are his tips on writing.
