Today’s world is literally at a writer’s fingertips. A few keyboard strokes can open the Internet information gates to help you create stories that are distinctively credible and compelling.
This month: Ann Videan – Key Techniques to Compel Readers to Love Your Book
Authors, learn how to build a compelling story line, create visual imagery and emotion which subliminally entice readers into your story, and even some tips on using Microsoft Word for writing and formatting. Bring pencil and paper, or your laptop, because, in this two-hour session, Book Shepherd Ann Videan will immerse you in ideas and exercises to help you:
- Leverage the “story question” and “scene question” to develop a compelling plot line
- Write with active voice, and deep point-of-view
- Effectively use MS Word for editing and formatting
Ann guides peers through the writing, editing, publishing and word-of-mouth marketing of both fiction and nonfiction titles. A professional writer since 1981, she opened her own award-winning home-based marketing firm, vIDEAn Unlimited, LLC, in 1996. She has served as an editor for corporations, visionary entrepreneurs, and national publishers. She is also a novelist and co-founder of Absolutely Wild! Enchanted Faerie Portals & Other Whimsy, inspired by the Fae characters in her Song of the Ocarina novel. She composed and recorded an original music soundtrack to accompany her first novel Rhythms & Muse. Her three businesses support young writers and artists.
Ann showed up in this world with a pen in her hand, a song in her heart, and the desire to share with you. She adores creativity of all types, and especially the people who live it. She gathers friends like flowers, including authors, musicians, artists, and her husband and two grown-up children. The Colorado native lives in Mesa, Arizona, along with numerous invisible friends including snarky mythical creatures and magical story characters.
