One Writing Challenge Ends, Another Begins

Well, I have to concede defeat in Camp NaNoWriMo.  I just wasn’t able to do much due to too many variables.  I also just wasn’t into this story, as I hadn’t done enough preparation for it.  I don’t like going straight into writing if I haven’t done a lot of planning.

But now, on to the next writing challenge.  This one is a course on FutureLearn called Start Writing Fiction.  From what I can tell, this mainly helps with character development, but also deals a lot with editing and other aspects of writing.  It starts on April 28th and runs for 8 weeks.  I’m very interested in seeing where this goes.

Anyone else planning to join the course?  It’s free.

  1. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t win Camp NaNo! 😦 But it’s great that you’re doing this course. I’ve never heard of FutureLearn and it sounds really interesting. I may or may not join the course; I’m currently still in school the Start Writing Fiction course begins the week of finals. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. It’s okay, I don’t think I really thought I’d succeed in it. Having too much going on at one time really does make it difficult to concentrate.

      Finals are definitely important!

  2. Funny, but I don’t know a lot of people who have had a lot of success with Camp NaNo. It’s like April is just a bad month for people or something…lol

    I might check out that course as well. It sounds interesting.

    1. Maybe it is a bad month. I had so much to deal with. If I were in university still, April was the month of finals, so no chance.

      The course looks interesting, and hopefully useful.

  3. I’ve been signed up for that course! I start it this week after my work nights are done. Tuesday will be my first look!

      1. Well, except the sharing WIPS and such for me…not sure I can do that and keep to their terms of agreement…um..will have to see when the time comes.

          1. I know. Lucky you. I’ll try to think of something before the time comes along. Started the class yesterday. Will pick it up again this afternoon I hope if the weather lets me keep power.
