January Third Thursday: Beginning (Again): How to Start or Restart a Writing Project

January 21, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Have a great idea for a book but you aren’t sure how to get started? Or maybe you need to a return to a project that has lain dormant for a while — for whatever reason.

Sometimes the trickiest part of writing is simply beginning. You can’t finish what you don’t start, but there is something overwhelming about the blank page or empty screen. And revisiting a manuscript you abandoned a while ago dredges up all kinds of fears and worries. So how do writers cope? How does one motivate his/herself to sit down every day and keep going?

Join us Thursday, January 21, to hear how four authors deal with the challenges of starting (or restarting) a manuscript. Our distinguished panelists will be Edward Carey, Lindsey Lane-Author, Greg Levin’s Author page, and Suzy Spencer.
