This coming weekend I am going to be involved in two activities that concern writing. Both are from the Pioneer Valley Writers’ Workshop (PVWW). On Saturday, I will be attending the workshop, Marketing Your Book Online! The presenter is Fungai Tichawangana.
I wanted to attend this session because, eventually, I will be done with my book and need to market it. I did almost all the marketing for Brewing Battles. That was almost fourteen years ago so I am sure things have changed.
The other event I am attending is on Sunday. It is the orientation for the year long manuscript group. As you may recall, I thought I was going to participate in that the last year, but I decided not to. This year’s group, which I will be part of, is nonfiction, non memoir. I think there will be people in the group who are writing things that are similar to what I am writing.
I am really hoping that the monthly meeting with the whole group as well as accountability buddies that you have during the month will provide sufficient structure, motivation, and focus so that I can complete my manuscript. It is a big commitment, but I think it will be worth it.
