The Top 10 Truths that I've Learned About Writing (No Lies) This Sat. October 15 at 3 pm at P.O.B. Public Library

Reading/Reception with coffee, tea, cakes, cookies, and yes, a talk about the writing process.  The top 10 truths that I've learned about the writing process.  Hint:  Write what you know is NOT on the top 10 list.  It's not on the list at all.

I think that's one of the biggest mistakes because would be fiction writers interpret it too narrowly.  Write about what you've experienced -- in the deepest, most truthful way, from the heart, and transfer that into your story.  I didn't "know" anything about hate crimes, I never was a victim of one, never participated in any violence against anybody.  But I knew what it meant to be an outsider, to feel like you didn't belong, to be bullied for being different.  I knew what it meant to feel lost as a teenager, to want to be part of a group, almost at any cost. But the events in LIE weren't directly mine, so I incorporated what I experienced into the story and just worked on making it the best story I could.  What are your 10 ten truths about the writing process??   What else should I include??

If you are in the area I hope you can come!  See below --  poster in the hall of the POB Library-- so cool -- thank you POB Library!!
