10 Things Every Writer Should Know

It took me six years, three months and about two and a half weeks from the time I decided to write a book, to the day I made (what would eventually become) a successful submission to my publisher, Echelon Press. If I'd known in those early days what I know now, I'm pretty sure I could have done it in less than half the time.

With that in mind, I've put together a presentation, which I sincerely believe can help writers speed up their own learning process.

On Wednesday, October 5th, at 7:00pm, I'll be giving that talk, 10 Things Every Writer Should Know, at Somerville Library (35 West End Ave., Somerville, NJ 08876).

I'll have paperback copies of my debut novel, Fur-Face, there, and since most of the people in the audience will be some kind of writer, I'll be giving a free 'I are a writer!' mug to everyone who buys my book afterwards.

  

If you'd like to come along, I'd love to see you there :)

As usual, my only problems with attending are that I am in New York, and do not drive, have no car, and do not live in Manhattan. Much luck, and have fun!

I hope you're doing a recap for those of us who live too far away to heckle you from the front seat!

I plan to do a series of posts on it, but in the meantime, here's a more lighthearted version I wrote a while back: http://jongibbs.livejournal.com/15856.html

the kid keeps taking my kindle to keep reading Fur Face. She said tonight "Tell that friend of yours thank you for writing this book!" (hey, it's about a cat with attitude.) She keeps laughing out loud, too, while she's reading.
