Upcoming TEDx Talk: Words, Not Ideas: The Secret to Writing a Book


Funny enough, my talk will focus on words of wisdom imparted by my neighbor, Ted Enslin, a poet who wrote around 120 books during his lifetime. I am so excited to get to talk book writing at TEDx Spokane, which this year focuses on "Knowing It Again." For anyone who has attempted to write a nonfiction book only to get stalled, I hope to reveal a new, practical side to the writing process. The goal is to see writing through new eyes and finish the manuscript you've begun,

The deets:
