This is the week to start that journey from completed manuscript to publishing. On Saturday (1/16) at 10:30 a.m., leaders in the group will be at the North Bend Library to provide a short presentation and help attendees move forward. SVW! is presenting this year-long workshop series, NaNoWriMo to Published, designed to help you take a roughly written finished manuscript through the editing, critique, revision edit, beta, final edit, ARC, polish and publish phases. There will be some general instruction and resources offered, but it will mostly be a hands-on support program tailored to help move each writer forward with focus on areas where they are seeking help and/or continued motivation.
Please think about what you’d like to work on for this year’s workshop and consider committing to this intensive program. If you’re not sure…come to the meeting on Jan 16th at the NB library Meeting Rm from 10:30–noon to find out more about it. http://www.kcls.org/calendar/detail.cfm?view=event&lib=29
For those still trying to find The End, your prompt is to set aside no less than 20 minutes today and write. It doesn’t matter if you write three words, thirty words, or 333 words. Just so that you write in those 20 minutes. Journal if there are no story ideas. Then do this 20 minutes again tomorrow. Keep at it. Every day this year and you’ll find “The End.” You might even find it more than once.
And now your moment of Writing Zen:
“Commitment is an act, not a word.” ~Jean-Paul Sartre

“But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling, like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.” ~ Lord Byron
