I’m interested in starting a creative writing course and I hope you enjoyed the topic pun! I am 26, from the UK and have not done any further education since I left school after my GCSE’s where I got a C in English. I barely remember any of what I was taught but I have been writing creatively for around 6 years. I am having trouble improving and recently I find it difficult to begging writing text even when I have a great clear idea in my head. I would like to do a creative writing course to encourage me to write more frequently and to get some help and advice with my work. I don’t want to waste my money but I’m happy to spend £300 if I feel I would benefit from it. My options are... Spend the money on some good books, Some better programs (I currently use power structure), Redoing an English GCSE. Doing an A-level in English Starting an online course 10weeks Or lastly, doing a short diploma online for a year. My spelling is very poor and I know very little about the whys and wherefores of grammar and proper sentence structuring. I know there are rules, but I have only ever written very freely and simply try to get my ideas from brain to paper as fast as possible. I would love to learn to write properly and I think I would benefit from the organisation of a course as it should give me more motivation that if I were to buy a book to follow. Perhaps I would be beter of going back to the beggining and starting the GCSE. I would really like some advice on how best I should spend my time and money on improving. Thank you for your time.
