Are you writing a book? Do you have one tucked away somewhere?
Would you like to publish it, but don’t know how?
Then come to a self-publishing session hosted by the
Lewiston Writers' Group
Date: Saturday, March 29, 2014
Time: 12:00 to 2:00 pm
Learn about self-publishing!
Book designer Mike Miller, author of It’s Your Book - Create It, Publish It, Market It (to be released in April) will present a guide to creating, publishing, and marketing your book. Bring your questions, maybe even your manuscript, and let’s explore together how self-publishing may be the answer to getting your words out. This interactive session will focus on print/publish-on-demand services, marketing, and content creation.

We hear a lot about tools for writers; the obvious ones are a computer and printer, the internet, a typewriter (for you Luddites), paper and pencil (for you committed Luddites), a dictionary, a thesaurus, a writing group. Reading is another tool, albeit not frequently mentioned. I suggest there are several more: brainstorming comes to mind, and workshops, interviews, and conversations. That’s not all, how about prompts, be they lead-in sentences, photographs, or randomly selected words. Every idea sparks a new idea, and, looking backward, every idea has sprung for a previous idea. Right brain activity supports creativity, helps us to make new associations. Stop for a minute, right now, and jot down some ideas.
The ideas may be simple, that’s okay; they might become a springboard for more. Often, all it takes is one fleeting thought when captured, and explored even only slightly to become the seed for a story. Only you can inject your experience into your writing project. Look at what you’ve written in the past - what initiated those stories or poems? Suspicious about these paragraphs - you should be - and the answer is "Yes", read the first character of each sentence.
