Attending Digicon 2014, Presenting Three Workshops

leave a comment »

Folks, over the next three days (May 29-31, 2014), I will be attending Digicon 2014, a special event put on by This is an important online writer’s convention, and I’m proud to be a part of it.

But I’m not just attending Digicon14. I am also presenting three workshops, which are:

  • “When Your Crystal Ball Doesn’t Work — How to Fix Your Foreshadowing”
  • “Procrastination Sedation — Or How to Quit Wasting Time on Social Media and Write”
  • “Manuscripts Gone Wrong, or, How to Drive Your Editor Crazy Without Even Trying”

Now, why did I pick these particular topics?

Foreshadowing is one of the trickiest things for any writer to do. Even experienced writers can be confused by foreshadowing. So I tried to give some common-sense general tips. (I’m also hoping people will chime in with their own examples, so we can be a bit interactive.)

As for the second, time-management is essential for writers. Without it, we are doomed.

And as for the third? Well, I’m an editor. I’ve seen many mistakes time and time again. These mistakes can be overcome, but first, writers have to be made aware of them . . . it’s the same old adage as applies to anything else: You cannot fix a problem if you don’t first know it’s a problem.

If you, too, would like to be a part of Digicon14, it’s not too late for you to sign up here.

Hope to see you there.
