DEAL BREAKER: Noun: a factor or issue that, if unresolved during negotiations, would cause one party to withdraw from a deal. Well, that sounds neat and tidy, and pretty serious. In reality the deal breaker does not have to be a “good reason” by society’s standards, it’s a very personal thing. What’s the bottom line? Or more to the point, what’s YOUR bottom line? What was a deal breaker for you?

Send me your pitch  for a 10-minute true story about you and a deal breaker. We can only choose 6 tellers, so we’ll let you know in plenty of time who made the cut. We also have guidelines and a rehearsal to help get you ready. It’s a great event!

Just What Is Your Writer Platform?

Posted by on May 27, 2018 in Event | 0 comments

TUESDAY JULY 17 10:15-11:30 AM

It’s no mystery that for literary success today, it’s more than the elevator pitch, interviews, and static listings for your book. A writer platform is key today.

You need to know who you are (your platform’s foundation), what you offer your readers (your services), and they have to know you, maybe in person, and via a current online presence and *social media outlets, (the delivery method for your platform, aka Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)

Join me for this entertaining talk with practical tips and researched ideas on what and how to use social media to create a writer platform that works for you, and still have time to do what you love – Write. Or hike, or read, or sky dive, or just “be.”

Hosted by the Write Group of Montclair Montclair Library  50 South Fullerton    Montclair NJ 07042

Not a Write Group member? This is open to the public for writers. RSVP me so I can give the Write Group a heads-up on numbers.    etheleemiller@me.com

Odyssey Storytelling -“Deal Breaker”

Posted by on May 27, 2018 in Event | 0 comments

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1 7-9 PM ODYSSEY STORYTELLING “Deal Breaker”  Doors open 6:30 pm. The Sea of Glass—Center For The Arts  330 E 7thSt.  Convenient paid parking lot right next to Sea of Glass. Free street parking also.

So excited to be the curator at this event. $10 General / $7 Students with ID.  Tix www.brownpapertickets.com or at the door.

Come hear 6 local true stories about the November theme, “Deal Breakers”
DEAL BREAKER: Noun: a factor or issue that, if unresolved during negotiations, would cause one party to withdraw from a deal. Well, that sounds neat and tidy, and pretty serious.

In reality the deal breaker does not have to be a “good reason” by society’s standards, it’s a very personal thing. What’s the bottom line? Or more to the point, what’s YOUR bottom line?

So what’s that one thing that you can’t overlook or tolerate in business, in entertainment, in personal relationships, in your home, in eating/drinking/dancing/traveling/clothing habits? The list can go on and on.

“Sometimes red flags are no longer red flags, they’re deal breakers. Then, do you forgive or is it a deal breaker?

What’s the catch that can sometimes be a wakeup call?

What might have been a deal breaker then and now may only be a mere shoulder shrug? Or vice versa?

Send me your pitch for a 10-minute true story about you and a deal breaker. We can only choose 6 tellers, so we’ll let you know in plenty of time who made the cut. We also have guidelines and a rehearsal to help get you ready. It’s a great event!
