I planned to spend my summer indoors quietly catching up on my backlist of YA fantasy and scifi novels and maybe doing a bit of book editing. But I’ve also been wishing I had a way to help out more and share my expertise.
I practically grew up at summer camps, spending 3 months a year for almost a decade deep in the woods teaching basketry, canoeing or wilderness survival, but this summer of course will be different – for a lot of people.
So I set up a free online writing program designed especially for young (or new) authors, based on the practical writing materials I’ve developed over the last few years (which have received millions of views and helped thousands of writers publish their books).
What’s in it for you?
BUT – the mistakes are common, predictable, and resolvable (if you know what you’re doing). So you can learn about writing fiction and self-edit and catch more on your own than you could with feedback. Few people know enough about the craft of writing (writing fiction on purpose, instead of via exploratory creativity), but I love trying to figure out the “rules” and guidelines and templates to make it easier.
