After having Wes Fryer (SpeedofCreativity.org) hang out in your house for a few days, one can't help but be inspired to write a book...any book, albeit, an ebook. That's why I've started playing around with iBook Author recently...playing. While I'm not sure the end result will be publish worthy, I hope some will find the ideas useful when it's done.
In the meantime, I don't know about other writers, but I am inspired when I read advice on writing. I have been so focused on reading EdTech Reform, edtech blog entries, that I forgot that the one bit of writing that really gets me worked up is books and articles on writing.
Agile Writers (http://AgileWriters.org) is a writer’s club dedicated to helping the beginning writer create a first-draft novel in 6 months. The process of getting from a blank page to a full manuscript is based on the writings of experts in literature, screenwriting, mythology, psychology, and a little project management. It is the contention of Agile Writers that anyone who has a story to tell can complete a first-draft novel in 6 months.
We also have meetings for those working on non-fiction as well.
Check out our Calendar and sign up for one of our monthly Orientation Seminars to learn the Agile Writer novel method. Then join the Agile Writer Workshop to create your first-draft novel in 6 months.
Also, come to our monthly "Beyond Agile Writers" Seminars where we welcome a guest editor, agent, or publisher to talk about what to do after your novel is written.
