Full of energy and ideas, Ann N. Videan was the guest speaker at the Friday Night Writes at Dog-Eared Pages bookstore recently. The good news is she will be speaking for the Writer’s Connection Workshop at Desert Foothills Library, in Cave Creek, Arizona on June 5 from 1:00 to 3:00.
Ann opened with the advice, ” Don’t ignore your intuition.”
She gave us a list of resources and ideas for all aspects of writing, publishing, and marketing.
Some of her suggestions included:
Read what you love and what informs you.
Start networking through local and national clubs.
Join critique groups on-line and in person.
Make time to write.
Market while you are writing. Use social media, the press, and word-of-mouth.
Her favorite books on writing are: Goal, Motivation & Conflict: The Building Blocks of Good Fiction by Debra Dixon and The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler.
Ann also explained the differences between ISBN numbers, Barcodes, and Library of Congress numbers.
