About a month ago, I bought a milkweed plant and it had a baby caterpillar on it. It was fun to watch the caterpillar grow and change into a pupa. Yesterday it emerged and we released it in our garden.
As writers, it’s important for us to keep on growing as we improve our writing skills. Along the way, we metamorphosize and turn into successful, published writers. And still we keep on growing!!!!
With this in mind, I want to invite you to come join me at a free local writing workshop I’ll be teaching this week!
For any of you who live near Rancho Cucamonga, come on out and join the fun at the Rancho Writers, a writer’s group that meets each month.
Here’s where you’ll find us:
Date: Wednesday, July 9, 2014
Place: Room One at Northkirk Presbyterian Church
9101 19th St
Alta Loma, CA
Cost: Meeting is free and open to the public
Of course, I’ll be there to answer questions you may have about writing, and I’ll be selling some of my books after the event, but here’s what I’ll specifically be teaching about:
* The Rule of Three and how using it can help you develop stronger characters.
* Exercises to help you develop stronger voices for your characters.
* Tips and techniques on being a Piggyback Writer so you can break into print and get your manuscripts published.
* How to “Show, Don’t Tell.”
I hope to see you there!
