I’ll be at Clayton Books talking about Finch and about Booklife and giving attendees a little teaser of the all-day Booklife workshop. Clayton is about an hour’s drive from San Francisco.
EXPLORING YOUR BOOKLIFE: In this new age of social media award-winning writer Jeff VanderMeer, the author of Booklife: Strategies & Survival Tips for 21st Century Writers, shows you how to achieve a sustainable career and sustainable creativity. The workshop touches in holistic fashion on both your Public Booklife and your Private Booklife. From dealing with white noise and â€œopen channelsâ€ to multi-tasking your creativity, distinguishing process from habit, and rediscovering passion in your writing, this workshop is all about balance and working smarter. The workshop addresses questions like â€œHow can thinking strategically about your career actually enhance your private writing time?â€ and â€œWhat types of promotion or networking enhance your life and which turn you into a dog chasing its own tail?â€ For beginning and intermediate writers. Whether youâ€™ve just started submitting your work or have a couple of books published, this workshop will provide valuable strategies for enhancing your Booklife.
