About This Class

63f36361

Creative Writing often starts in a hot bubble of enthusiasm. We can't wait to pour those words onto the page! But did you know, writers make mistakes they're often not even aware of? 

My class is designed to equip you with the key technical tips you need to avoid plunging into those mistakes which will cost you time and effort later on and slow you down. These come from experience, not only from me but other successful fiction authors who wished they'd had the lowdown when they started out.

Here's what we'll cover:

UNIT 1 - WRITING

1. Head Hopping - what it means and why it matters.

2. Cliches - and other no-nos or "not necessarilies".

3. Unsatisfying Endings - or "Is this as good as it gets?"

4.Changing tenses - unconscious time-slip.

5. Purple Prose.

UNIT 2 - PRESENTATION 

6. Spelling and Grammar Mistakes.

7. Formatting - sending your manuscript out for an interview.

8. How not to contact literary agents.

9. Not My Genre!

10. Wind up and Summary.

This is a quick little class full of useful information, but it probably should've been titled "9 Creative Writing Howlers to Avoid". Looking forward to checking out more.
