Over the years, I have had a great desire to write fiction. I have started (and stopped) far too many stories to count, but never seem to follow through with them. It’s not like I think they are garbage, well maybe some of them are garbage, but it’s just the want to write them to an end is never there. I have decided it is time to stop with that and get something done!
To start things off right, I have signed up for an online writing group. It’s not really a “school” in the traditional sense, but more of a support group for fellow writers. It’s called Writers Village, and I have taken one of their classes many years ago, and they seem to have a good following. I figure, I will take a few 8 week classes to get my head back into the whole writing thing. If the words flow well after that, then great! If the work is only “sort of” coming, I might in fact sign up for a real writing class.
There are a number of them locally around here, or I might even look at an online writing class, where there are real instructors and everything. I am just using WV as a spring board in a sense. As of now, I have completed 2 exercises in each of the two classes I am taking. They are obviously not graded, but I am getting supportive feedback. I will finish these first 2 classes up and I have registered for a few more, but we’ll see how things are going when they start up.
