I hope you will join me here, by reading my blog and books, joining me in workshops, contributing guest posts, and maybe even making a comment or two or more. Everyone is welcome!

Taking a Literary Plunge

By Lisa KramerMay 1, 201410

Tomorrow I will attend my second NESCBWI conference . . . the conference which just last year encouraged me to take control of my own website and start building my creative platform.

Tomorrow I will not just be attending the conference, I will also be presenting a workshop called “From Stage to Page: Using Creative Dramatics to Inspire Writing”. My “experienced-theatre artist-educator-HeArtful Theatre company cofounder” personality will merge with my “writer-who-has-a-few-articles-and-short-stories-published-as-well-as-two-novels-written-but-still-feels-like-a-newbie” personality to, hopefully, inspire people in a creative way.

Can you tell that I am nervous?

There’s also one other thing that will happen tomorrow. I will commit, in a public forum, to publishing P.O.W.ER. I am committing to believing in myself as an author, and my book will be out as soon as it possibly can be. At my workshop, and elsewhere, I will be handing out two-sided business cards.

Her is the front of my business cards. Since I’m also hoping to get some more work for heArtful Theatre Company, I have to provide a lot of information. (At the workshop, I will also give the group heArtful Theatre postcards.)

This is the back of my business card, including part of the art for the soon to be finished cover.

I will be declaring myself the author of a book that makes me proud. You might have already noticed some changes, but this website will be changing to put that book and that personality in the forefront. I will be reaching out to you, my friends and my readers, to help me spread the word and get this book out there.

Tomorrow is a giant leap, but I have a feeling I will land safely.

Wish me luck.
