11:00 - 12:00 Morning Program, Jon Gibbs: IS YOUR ‘but’ TOO BIG?
There are many ways to justify not writing: ‘I’m too old. . . It’s too hard. . . There’s a worldwide pandemic and civilization is doomed so what’s the point in even trying?’ The bad news is, it really doesn’t matter which reason you choose, they all work, if you let them. So how do you get past the excuses to putting words on the page?
Join New Jersey author, Jon Gibbs, for a fun, interactive session on getting your ‘but’ out of the way, so you can get your butt back in the writing chair.
Also, there may be candy – but since this is a video session, only if you bring your own.
Born in England, Jon Gibbs now lives in New Jersey, where he was Author-in-Residence at Georgian Court University from 2012-2017. He is the founder of The New Jersey Authors’ Network (www.njauthorsnetwork.com). His first two middle-grade books, FUR-FACE (2010) and BARNUM’S REVENGE (2013), where published by Echelon Press.
Jon has a website: www.acatofninetales.com and a blog: http://jongibbs.livejournal.com. When he's not chasing around after his three children, he can usually be found hunched over the computer in his basement office. One day he hopes to figure out how to switch it on.

Jon Gibbs: DON’T FORGET YOUR CHANGE
Whether you’re a diehard plotter or a seat-of-the-pants, make-it-up-as-you-go-along type of writer, nothing beats the thrill of seeing your story come to life on the page.
Trouble is, in all the excitement, it’s easy to miss one of the most important ingredients. Having your story change its MC (or the way others see him/her) might not seem as cool as all those twisty plots and character quirks, but it’s the difference between a good story and a great one.
Join New Jersey author, Jon Gibbs, for a fun, interactive workshop on how to use change to propel your story to the top level.
Also, there may be candy – but since this is a video session, you won’t be able to eat it.
