NEXT MEETING: November 2nd
Speaker: Stacey Purcell
Topic: Hook Your Reader But Don’t Leave Them at a One-Night Stand
Being a writer is hard and since the onslaught of technology, it’s even harder. Learn what’s happened to our brains, our downtime, and our interests.
Once I depress you with the facts, I’ll bring some solutions to catch your reader’s attention and make them want to stick to your book like duct tape on a victim’s mouth. (Hey! Remember, I love to write suspense!)
We want to hook ‘em, duct tape them, but leave a finger out to press the buy-button on your next book.
Stacey Purcell is not normal. Never has been, never will be.
Her childhood consisted of living in exotic places and only having her imagination as a companion. T.V., riding bikes and playing with neighborhood kids only happened when her family returned to the United States every summer. The rest was spent with books, art supplies, and making up worlds for her dolls.
She wrote her first romance on hotel stationary in London, her first play on the porch in Malaysia, and her first poem sitting at a taxi stand in Singapore. Not your normal childhood. But she wouldn’t trade it because it made her the creative she is today.
She became a teacher who focused her inventive outlook in the classroom, and a mother who crafted with her kids.
But when she became a writer, she found her place.
People often say that they’d love to live in Stacey’s world…come on in.
