I too am here for advice even though I'm a little more farther along with what I'm working on. The advice that I can give you is that you will receive conflicting advice. This is just life and, as in real life, you'll probably have to sort it out for yourself in the end. But here, you'll at least find a starting point...maybe much more.
It's not as scary as all that. I'm a writer. It's my job to get all dramatic!
