Okay, I did it. I actually did two things last evening. Following a link I found on Chris’s blog – http://thestoryreadingapeblog.com/, I signed up for a (free) 8 week writing course (https://iversity.org/courses/the-future-of-storytelling?r=103aa). It’s called the Future of Storytelling, and it has participants from around the world. It started October 25th so I did the first Chapter (8 lessons) last evening. The second Chapter is posted today. I thought it would give me some suggestions. I like it so far.
The second thing I did was to sign up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writer’s Month). I thought it would get me a jump-start on my children’s novel. So it’s going to be a busy month for me. I have my last college class, and that will finish just before Christmas (December 23rd). I have the Storytelling class that runs through December 20th. I have NaNoWriMo which runs for the entire month of November – it’s a challenge to write 50,000 words in a month. I do like a challenge!
