Today’s Speaking Engagement at TPLWC

Today I spoke about “Using Enneagram to Create Character Conflict” at the Tyler Public Library Writer’s Club Facebook Group. I thought it went really well. 🙂 Here’s a link to the video, which you can access if you are a member of the aforementioned Facebook Group.

Speaking Engagement at TPLWC on 08.25.20

On August 25, 2020 at noon at the Tyler Public Library’s Writer’s Club Facebook Group, I will present a lesson on “Using the Enneagram to Create Character Conflict.” It is mostly the same as the one I presented to a more private group a week or so ago, but this one is in a more public group.

Today’s Speaking Engagement at TPLWC

I spoke today at the Tyler Public Library’s Writing Club Facebook Group on “How to Do a Writing Check-Up.” I spoke about what to include in the check-up and how to use the results to make goals and improve yourself and your writing business. I included some exercises geared towards that and then also some regular writing exercises, just for fun. It went really well!

Today’s Speaking Engagement at ETWG

I spoke today at the East Texas Writer’s Guild members meeting on “Bringing Creativity to NaNoWriMo.” It went really well! Unfortunately, there’s not a recording available. If you are interested, I can share my slideshow and notes, as well as the handout, with you. Just send me an email and I’ll send you a link.

Today’s Speaking Engagement at TPLWC

I spoke today at the Tyler Public Library’s Writing Club Facebook Group on “Elements of Crime Writing.” It went really well, even with Facebook’s pop-ups. As you can see from the screenshot, I was once again speaking from my son’s room. Isn’t online speaking quirky?

In any case, I started out by talking about ProWritingAid’s Crime Week – an online writing conference focused on writing crimes and mysteries. I learned so much there, so this lesson was a giant summary of all the tips and tricks I learned there over the course of the week.

Today’s Speaking Engagement at TPLWC

Today at the Tyler Public Library Writer’s Club, we asked people to reply to the prompts with videos of themselves reading their responses, in order to liven up and build our sense of community. I did introductory videos and also read all of my responses to writing prompts in comments. Several other people joined in and it was a lot of fun. What a good experiment!

Speaking Engagement at TPLWC on 03/31/21

On March 31, 2021 at noon, I will speak at the Tyler Public Library’s Writing Club Facebook Group about “Community Building.” Well, maybe saying I’m speaking this time is a little disingenuous. What we are doing this week is a bit different and possibly a fun experiment in a new way to run our online group. Come and join the group so you can see me speak and work on the fun writing prompts here: {link}

Today’s Speaking Engagement at WWW

First thing this morning, my dad called and told me that he had left his suitcase behind yesterday in his haste to get out of the house on time. All his medications were in there, as was his laptop. So I needed to drive and meet him halfway between our town and his and hand off his stuff. The only problem? I was supposed to speak at the Wednesday Writers Whatchamacalit Facebook Group at 11am and there was no way I was going to make it back in time for that.

So I did what any half-way reasonable human would do: I found a place online that would record me giving my presentation, along with my slide show, and I recorded it and sent the link to the group, promising to come back and do a Q&A in the comments section once I was home.

So that is just what I did and it went really well. You can watch the whole thing for free here (you may need to register for a free account with Panopto first.) or go here for the WWW group and comments
