What writerly talks and presentations would you like to give?

Tomorrow evening, I'll be giving my presentation, 10 Things Every Writer Should Know, at Long Hill Library, NJ. Kick-off's at 7:30pm. If you'd like to come along, I'd love to see you there.

When I first considered potential topics for my solo presentations, I thought long and hard about which subject to talk about.

I settled on 10 Things for two reasons: First, I'm still in the early stages of my writing career, which means that, while I'm not a complete novice, and I'm confident about discussing a wide range of writerly-type subjects, there are plenty of other writers giving those talks (and with far more eloquence than what I could).

The second reason is more selfish. 10 Things is based on what I learned in my personal journey as a writer. I do believe what I have to share can help folks shorten their journey to publication, but if I'm honest, I think I settled on this topic more because it's so easy to talk about. After all, I've never been shy about sharing examples of my stupidity with others, and Lord knows, when it comes to writing, I've made plenty of daft mistakes along the way.

How about you?
