    Considering an online course...which one to choose!?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Whitepaws, Aug 11, 2015.

    I have been writing my novel, and lost steam just as I entered Act 2. Not good.

    However, I'm determined to finish it and considered a few courses to keep me on track.

    Has anyone taken any of these, or courses with the organisation? Would you mind sharing your experience or giving feedback on those?

    Thank you!

    If you took a course which you heartily recommend, please let me know :)

    Watching the videos on youtube or going to the site "writeaboutdragons" helped me a lot.

    Let me tell you what you need ...

    You need James Patterson's Masterclass; that shit will transform you into William Shakespeare for only $90 of your hard earned cash.

    It was a joke. :)

    James Patterson's stuff isn't exactly regarded as great literature. But it's your choice. Do as you will. :)

    I had a look at it, and it it's not quite what I need due to limited critique. Still, it's a good course for beginners and would possibly replace a 1/4 of my craft books (which cost me about the same as this class).

    I don't really know much about writing courses, but I can tell you that all you need to learn how to write is a handful of well written books and some logical analysis of them. There is also a ton of useful information to be found on-line, this forum included. :)

    Edit: I suppose the nice part about a writing course is that you know you're going in the right direction, though.
