Thank you! And Katy Duffield needs a shoutout--she passed my name to the editor who contacted me. It's such a lovely, lovely community here.

There are a lot of great internet sources these days. Just verify that the information is good and you should be all right.

You might bolster and back up the info with interviews.

Non-Fiction (NF) / using internet sources
« Last post by Gbug on August 08, 2019, 08:57 AM »
How terrible is it to use internet sources for a non-fiction article?  I have an idea for one of the Carus magazines. I ordered a pertinent used book on the topic from Amazon that I'm excited to read, but other than that, all I'm really finding is internet sources. They are good, credible sources....just online. My library doesn't have much on the specific topic unfortunately. I've reached out to a couple of expert sources, but who knows if I will hear back.

I read on a non-fiction writing advice website that it's best to avoid internet sources on a bibliography. Is this true, or is that pretty much outdated information now that so much is on the internet?

Thank you so much! It means the world to me--to celebrate here with you. Btw, I still stutter, but I'm able to mask it better. My thoughts run way ahead of my mouth and my mental dictionary is constantly going to avoid troublesome sounds. School visits are still challenging but I'm really looking forward to talking to kids about this.

Ev, did your youngest grow out of it? Many, many kids stutter in the 2-5 age group and their brains figure it all out. Some of us never achieve that fine control over speech.

What a wonderful topic to share with kids. (My youngest stuttered some when he was a pre-schooler.)  Congratulations, Vijaya!  :yay I'm thrilled for you.   :love5
