IPAC presents Deb Angus
Author of: Regaining Consciousness: My Encounter with Mild Brain Injury—The Silent Epidemic
Our October meeting focused on getting clear about the outcomes that you want from your writing and publishing vision. In November, we move to how to get and stay motivated.
We all have natural drives, tendencies and motivations. Do you know and understand what yours are? For established authors, recent authors and especially for aspiring authors, Deb Angus will be sharing her thoughts on what motivates us to write. If you could understand your own personality and what motivates you in your own life, you could probably discover the secret to motivating your writing. Deb will help us understand Dr. Carl Jung’s 12 common archetypes of human motivation and how we can recognize and understand our own archetype and the behaviours and motivations that are natural to each of us.
Deb will also talk about the discipline that keeps us motivated and on track: the importance of creating our own writing space, and setting up a writing schedule and structure that works specifically for you.
Join us for a creative thought-provoking presentation, followed with open conversation that explores ideas and motivations for your current and/or upcoming writing projects.
BIO: Deb Angus is an author & speaker. She published her first non-fiction book in 2014: Regaining Consciousness: My Encounter with Mild Brain Injury—The Silent Epidemic. Deb, an IPAC member, “accidentally” discovered a strong motivation & direction for this, her first book. She is now considering embarking on a work of historical fiction that would be loosely based on her own family history in Quebec in the 1600s. Deb is currently exploring her own motivations as a basis for successfully completing this project.

As always, you will have a chance to meet and talk with other authors and self-publishers. Our members tell us over and over how much this has helped them along the writing and publishing journey.

The meeting fee is $20 for members and $25 for non-members (cash or cheques only), payable at the beginning of the meeting. A full breakfast is included in the fee (the meal cannot be deducted from meeting fees because our room rental is based on the number of attendees).
