I am Paula Riley, author/editor and freelance writer/photographer based in Reno, Nevada, a beautiful place to live and not remotely near Vegas. Well, it shares the same state, but not quite the same state of mind.

I love what I do:

~ Freelance stories for magazines and newspapers.

~ Book doctoring; Preparation of manuscripts for Kindle or other eBooks.

~ Advice about preparing print-on-demand books through CreateSpace.

Join me on Tuesday evening, June 12, from 6-9 p.m. at Truckee Meadows Community College's Meadowood campus for a class/workshop that explores techniques and tools for breaking through a creative roadblock. What? You never get blocked? Bravo (and more power to you)! But for those who can use some prompting, this is the class. 

I'll share various techniques and tips, and we'll brainstorm potential work-arounds and/or bust-outs for those who bring a troublesome bit of their own project to noodle. Think of this class as a backscratcher for those hard-to-reach places, or maybe as dynamite for opening that rockslide to let the light shine through.

Good for non-fiction and fiction writers. All you need is a willingness to learn.

$39 fee, includes handouts, and they are offering a 20% discount for some writing classes. What a bargain! TMCC's title is "Overcome Writer's Block."

Here's a link to the class -- choose Creative Arts> Writing> Overcome Writer's Block
