September 13th will be a meeting you will want to attend, no matter where you are in the writing process. 

Do you have trouble with adding setting details to your novel?

Or does writing dialogue give you a headache?

Is it hard to infuse your characters with deep emotions?

Do you often come to a roadblock when you're writing and can't get past it?

Layering Pizzazz will help you learn to get past these times. Come prepared to take notes. Whether you are published or not, write short stories or novels, all  fiction writers can benefit from this talk.

DFW Ready Writer Co-founder  Lena Nelson Dooley will guide us through this process. A multi-award-winning author, Lena has had more than 800,000 of her books sold.

In addition to her writing, Lena is a frequent speaker at women’s groups, writers groups, and at both regional and national conferences. She has spoken in six states and internationally. She is also one of the co-hosts of the Gate Beautiful blogtalk radio show. She also serves on the Board of Directors of Higher Ground Films.

She has experience in screenwriting, acting, directing, and voice-overs. She has been featured in articles in Christian Fiction Online Magazine, ACFW Journal, and Christian Retailing.

Lena has won numerous awards—Will Rogers Medallion Award, Selah Award, Carolyn Readers Choice Award, to name a few. She lives in Texas with her husband of over 49 years. Their favorite activities involve time with their family members. Their daughters and sons-in-law have given them four grandchildren, and now they have two great grandsons, who delight them.

Lena has an active web presence on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Linkedin, Google+, and with her internationally connected blog where she interviews other authors and promotes their books.

Make plans to attend the ACFW-DFW Chapter on September 13th at 10:30 a.m. We meet in the Bedford Public Library at the crossroads of Forest Ridge Drive and Bedford Road, a few blocks north of Hwy121. Visitors are always welcome.
