Is “Write a Book” one of the things on your bucket list—that list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket? Got a story in your head that you’ve always wanted to write? Thought about writing the great American novel? Or just a memoir to pass to your grandchildren? Here’s a workshop for people who have thought about writing a book but aren’t sure how to get started. The workshop will be at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg on Saturday, November 8 from 9am-12 noon.
If you’ve got to “write a book” on your bucket list, this is the class to get you started. Best-selling author Lauren Carr will share her experience in writing and publishing to get you started on your story. In this three-hour workshop, Lauren will pass on the secrets that most professional authors had to learn the hard way about how to check “Write a Book” off that list. Among the secrets she will divulge:
- Where and How to Get Started on Your Book
- Making Time for Writing
- Identifying Time-Thieves
- Getting Past the 40-Page Block
- The Secret Behind Getting Over Writer’s Block
Lauren Carr is the best-selling author of the Mac Faraday Mysteries, which take place in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. The owner of Acorn Book Services, Lauren is also a publishing manager, consultant, editor, cover and layout designer, and marketing agent for independent authors.
