Happy New Year!
I've signed up for a free writing course that starts January 5th. It's called F2K Social (because, like Nanowrimo in a way, it also attempts to get the writers socializing at some level - writing is a lonely endeavor, so it's never a bad thing to connect to other writers). The class starts January 5th, so there's still time to sign up.
A little info from the website:
What is F2K?
F2K: Fiction Writing for the New Millennium
F2K is a free online creative writing course sponsored by Writers' Village University and staffed by volunteer Mentors.
The course includes seven one-week fiction writing lessons and is designed for beginning writers; however, intermediate and advanced writers are encouraged to take the course as a refresher or to socialize with and encourage beginning writers. Thousands of writers have discovered that F2K is a great way to break writers block.
I've been considering joining Writer's Village University with a one-year subscription, but I thought I'd get my feet wet first with the free course.
In other writing news - I've kind of slacked off on my editing of Gods Willing. It wasn't holding my attention and if it's not holding mine, it's not going to hold anyone else's. I do believe I'll start the editing on In the Shadow of Olympus and then come back to Gods Willing with a fresh perspective later on. I think it's a good story, but I just haven't found that spark it needs yet.
I'm also looking at a few short story contests to enter. I really do need to spread my wings more if I want to tackle the literary world.
In the mean time, I'm wishing you all the best in your 2011!
