Tripping with Jim is a simple, honest story by a complex person. It's a life's journey of stupid decisions, and close calls, written with humor, insights, and never-ending optimism.

Think of yourself as a hobo, and jump on the train of thought with Jim Adduci. You will go from state to state of mind. It will be fun, interesting, and thought provoking. Each trip is an experience in life. He will bring you to the places he's been, both physically and mentally, that made him who he is today, for better or worse.



Special thanks to Joanne Stankiviech for her presentation at the July meeting of "Evolution of the Writing Process"  A few of the topics discussed were: What's your PURPOSE in writing?, How would you define your book GENRE?, Who is your NICHE AUDIENCE? What is the appropriate MARKETING STRATEGY for your niche?  All questions we need to ask ourselves as we start the writing process.  


For the AUGUST 2017 meeting, we learned how to write log lines - for anything, fiction, non-fiction, magazine articles, periodicals. Why do you need a log-line?
