I am starting my 8 week email/on-line writing course this week -and I have to say I'm a little anxious about it. I've been putting off exploring my writing for so long now (the reason I signed up for this class really - as a kick start and motivator) that I'm not really sure where or how to begin!
The structure of the course means that I get an email on Monday giving me a writing exercise for that week, then another email mid week with some tips and inspiration and then on Sunday I send a piece of writing (up to 2000 words) to the facilitators for them to review and constructively critique. I like the protection of the on-line method - no embarrassing read aloud sessions to groups of other students - I realise this can be very helpful in the writing process, just not sure I'm up for that at the moment!
I have no dreams of being a published, award winning author - I would just like to be able to write some simple pieces without the angst and dreaded anticipation of what will arrive on the page.
So, here we go - not sure what the outcome will be but hopefully I will enjoy the process.
