PILLAR Class: From Idea to Book: The Journey

PILLAR Class: From Idea to Book:  The Journey   Where do story ideas come from? And what happens next after you get the idea?  Published author, Lucy Bell, will share this journey that begins with a story that won’t leave you alone, and keeps saying, “Write me! Write me!”  Then when you finally say yes, it puts rocks in the road, springs unwelcome surprises, and makes you want to quit. There’s a way to keep going. This is not a “How to get published” class.  This is a class that will encourage you to say “Yes,” when a story chooses you to be its voice.
