"The Writer’s GPS: How to Navigate a Successful Journey Through Publication and Beyond"
Does the writing life sometimes feel like a roller coaster, full of difficult ups and downs, elation followed by discouragement? Do the discouragements get tougher and tougher to overcome? Do you wish there was a better way to approach your writing career, so you could feel more confident about it?
Colleen M. Story has been a professional writer for over 20 years, and knows how the typical "roller-coaster ride" discourages writers along the way. In this presentation, she shares three reasons why writers often feel tossed about on their journeys, and helps them find a better way forward—one that provides a clearer sense of purpose and direction. She then explains the "dos" and "don'ts" of creating a more satisfactory and fulfilling career, such that any writer can withstand the inevitable twists and turns with the inner artist not only intact, but thriving.
