Re: [NW-Florida-Writers-Group] Welcome and Next Week's Seminar!

I have a couple of questions. I'm not at all an accomplished writer - published or otherwise - but I've been interested in writing for a long time. I've written a few things, none of them finished, but am not really ready to show them to anyone. I would be interested in attending meetings and this particular event for information and advice to help me write better, but I wanted to ask if that's ok first. I'm sure there are many members who are much further along and would benefit more than I would from submitting a manuscript, so I would like to opt out of that portion of the event if that's ok. 

I just wanted to check before attending any meetings/events to make sure that there's no issue with where I'm at with the writing process. I'm definitely interested in meeting other writers.

Subject: [NW-Florida-Writers-Group] Welcome and Next Week's Seminar!

Hey everyone!  I know we've got some new members I haven't welcomed yet, so to all you newbies - WELCOME!
Check out the calendar on the home page for upcoming meetings.  Next week, we have the Bush Publishing/Dan Vega seminar on the 26th (see below for official invite) and there are some scheduled meetings for those in the Pensacola area also, so check 'em out!
I've also posted that we will have a "big" meeting in February which will address all aspects of publishing.  By "big", I mean a meeting for all our far-flung regions, so I hope to see a bunch of ya there!
Bush Publishing has offered to publish one of our writers!  All you have to do is bring your manuscript (doesn't have to be finished) to the seminar next week.  Bring a CD with the file and also a printed manuscript, formatted 1" on all sides and double spaced.  You can print the entire thing or the first 40-50 pages.  Ms. Bush would like to get a good idea of story and writing ability, so no proposals, please.  The winner will be announced at the publishing meeting in February. 
                                   INVITATION FROM BUSH PUBLISHING
    Join Bush Publishing in hosting national speaker and business guru Dan Vega. Come boost your creativity, productivity and skill, and discover how to truly utilize some of the most powerful tools in business. Dan’s Business Boot Camp will teach you the hottest tips, tricks and essential techniques to supercharge your skills and maximize your talents! If you have been looking for ways to improve marketing, manage your time more efficiently or publish a book, this event is for you.
    We believe education and helping your community go hand-in-hand, and are the foundation for successful business and an abundant life.
Topics Include:
How to attract a publisher
How to brand yourself for success
The two enemies of success and how to conquer them
Structuring your company to win
Winning strategies for negotiating big
Building super value in any product or service
How to double your sales
Why most companies fail & how to avoid it
Low cost marketing strategies that work
How the economy works and why you can have a bright future
Plus much, much more…
    His program is not designed to be a motivational fix or sugar rush; many people have motivation. This is not the problem. Motivation is different from a motive for action.
    Dan’s motive in coming to Destin is to help people uncover the inner conflict that holds them back and change their motive for action. This will allow them to reach their full potential and enjoy an extraordinary life.
Hey writers,
Dan has been our coach here at Bush Publishing for over 2 years and has assisted us to levels of success that we could only previously imagine, including helping us in signing multiple celebrity authors. I have personally traveled with Dan all around the world attending his Business Boot Camps and Seminars and have seen transformation first hand in the lives of thousands.
Generally the tickets to these events are $295, however, Mr. Vega has humbly accepted our invitation to come to Destin, Florida, and is allowing Bush Publishing to invite the members of the NW Writers' Group free of charge. There will be no sales pitch at this seminar, just a room full of eager entrepreneurs and authors ready to learn.  At the seminar, Bush Publishing will be accepting manuscripts and has agreed to give away a full publish contract to one lucky author.
If you wish to attend this incredible event coming to the Florida area, sign up on the MeetUp Website.  You must sign up to get a ticket and to submit a manuscript.
I am listing a link to Mr. Vega’s site for you to refer to, as well as a link to our website.
Good writing and good luck,
Margo Bush President
Bush Publishing
