The Seven Questions That Will Revolutionize Your Writing
Imagine sitting next to the writing guru as she gives you exactly what you need and nothing else. In this seminar we'll go straight to the heart of the matter and explore the most critical lessons and solutions for your writing project.
The Seven Questions address each aspect of the writing and publishing process: the mindset required; the work itself; environmental considerations; the spiritual dimension; the business of publishing and finding a literary agent; the importance of marketing; and how to craft a practical plan to move your book forward.
Based on Lauretta's more than 20 years as an author and teacher, the seminar reveals the strategies essential to your success. Expect to be energized and inspired by this lively, thought-provoking experience. Bring questions, and leave with renewed resolve, creativity, and clarity.
This seminar is suitable for writers working in any genre and at any level. Attendees will receive a workbook, resource packet, and list of recommended readings. Once the seminar has concluded, we'll head next door to Hemingway's for a libation and continued discussion.
