"Bring Your Story to Life: How to Let Pictures Drive the Words” 
The world of blogging marries words with pictures, but who wants to read about your third dinner in a foreign country when you couldn’t read the menu or your dog’s favorite squeaky toy. Interesting to you, but boring to others. An award-winning author, photographer, and FiveWeeksInFlorence blogger, Ingrid shows you how to use picture elements to drive and enhance your story… whatever your topic, whatever the length.

Start Organizing Your Book Today

Learn How to Move Your Project Forward Even When You Don’t Feel Like Writing Your Story

Everyone has a story to tell and whether you write it yourself, dictate into a machine, or tell it to a ghost writer… you have to start somewhere. 

With the holidays now complete, you probably fall into one of two categories: 1) you’re the person who is anxious for some time alone to start writing, or 2) you have so many ideas, and new holiday memories, you don’t know where to start. 

Ingrid Lundquist, author of the award-winning Dictionary of Publishing Terms: What Every Writer Needs to Know and founder of The Book-In-Hand Roadshow, kicks-off the first 2016 meeting of Springfield History Club with tips that will jump-start your writing project. “Start Organizing Your Book Today” is not just about writing your story, it’s about building a book. She’ll show you how to develop the book parts as you write your story so you’re not caught off guard without the material you need in the end. She’ll explain in layman’s terms the different parts of a book and give tips on how to write them. You’ll learn insider-secrets on hooking different audiences, and why it’s ok to have an audience of one. Yes, it really is ok to have an audience of one.
