It’s time to finish that manuscript

Published writer launches coaching workshop in Agassiz

Do you have a great idea for a book but can’t get it down on paper? What about that manuscript you started then left a shelf? Perhaps it’s time to finish writing that book.

So many of us dream of someday writing a book, yet for various reasons we never get started or we get started then get stuck. Life gets in the way and it’s hard to focus on such a big project. Whatever your reason (or excuse) for not making that dream a reality, now is the time to get back at it.

“I had a story rolling around in my head for years,” says author, Wendy Dewar Hughes. “Lots of things interfered with sitting down and writing it. News from the publishing world made me wonder if I should even bother, but that story would not leave me alone.”

Wendy Dewar Hughes, well-known locally for her artwork, has been writing and studying the craft of writing and publishing for more than 30 years. She has written numerous articles, business materials and inspirational non-fiction. She has also ghost-written books for clients, edited and re-written writing clients’ work, and even been published in Reader’s Digest. She has recently published her first novel, Picking up the Pieces, an inspirational romantic adventure, already in its second printing.

Last year, Wendy launched her book coaching service for individual writing clients. Now she has created a 12-week, hands-on, interactive workshop to help writers get their books written, called Write That Book!

“We will examine various aspects of the writing process while participants work on their own projects. This is not a lecture class; it is a place to get the support you need to get your book done. Whether you are writing a novel, a non-fiction book or a memoir, we will help you work through the process to finish with a completed manuscript,” says Dewar Hughes.

Wendy Dewar Hughes will be presenting a Free Introductory Evening for Write That Book! It takes place September 20 at 7 p.m. at the Agassiz Library. This is a free event and all are welcome.
