stories and thoughts to help you try anyway)
The world of publishing
is, in a single word, chaos.
There are plenty of other
words. But to capture all of the joys, frustrations, hurdles,
thrills, disappointments, excitment, challenges, highs and lows
and in-betweens -- and on and on -- involved in the process of
bringing a project from thought to published, chaos covers all
of the ground fairly well.
In this workshop, Bob
will focus on his own thoughts, efforts and experience, drawing
from the perspective of things he wish he knew when he was starting.
What things did he do right? What mistakes were made? Where could
he have improved? Where did he improve? All these questions (and
several more) combine to create a presentation designed as an
introductory-level program that offers details every writer might
benefit from considering.
Make no mistake... there
are NO guarantees! This workshop acknowledges
and describes the difficulties facing writers that plan to bring
a book to the marketplace. It promises no slot on a bestseller
list... offers no contract with an agent... provides no space
on a bookstore shelf.
