"Start Writing Fiction" with FutureLearn and The Open University
At the end of my last post I mentioned that I was about to start a new online course with FutureLearn.
This is it! It's the 'Start writing fiction' by The Open University.
It's an eight week practical course which aims to help the student get started in own fiction writing, focusing on the central skill of creating characters. It's directed at beginners, but also those wanting to improve their writing. What's more, you can work at your own time and pace, and it's free!
One interesting note for readers of this blog. Journal keeping is considered to be very important aspect in becoming a writer.
As part of the course, there's videos by established writers talking about how they started writing, discussion on the rituals of writing, developing ideas, research, the importance of reflecting on writing and editing, and developing reading skills as a writer.
We will also be reviewing others and receiving peer feedback on our work. Fun times!
I'll post reviews in the course and give you updates on my own writing as the weeks progress.
Take a look. Why don't you delve in and become part of the group too?
