Horses for Courses…

Whatever that means!

Anyway just thought I’d post about an online writing course I’m starting tomorrow. It was recommended to me by the lovely Nicola Marsh who couldn’t say enough good stuff about the course and presenter Laurie Schnebly.

The course itself is run by WriterUniv and is called ‘Plotting via Motivation.’

I recall writers and editors saying that you can let your characters do almost ANYTHING as long as you motivate them well, so I’m really looking forward to learning more about this crucial part of writing. Hoping it’ll enhance my current wip and get me started on ideas for the next one.

The best part? I’m doing the course with my delightful friend and CP Becca J Heath!

So… what about you? Have you taken any useful writing courses lately? Planning to?

  1. Hi. Hope your course goes well. I'm looking forward to the 19th of Feb when I'm off to Fishguard for a weekend writing course with Kate Walker (my xmas pressie of the DH!) Hoping to get a *lot* of it. Hope you do with yours. Caroline x

  2. Hi Rach!I'm doing it too! I did it last year (same as Nic) and it was so great that I'm doing it again, with a new story that I'm not thinking about until tommorrow! See you there… p.s. have done lots of Laurie's courses, she's great.

  3. I did this course last year too. It's fabulous. I just blogged about Laurie's Enneagram book, I can't say enough good things about her. She's a great teacher, very hands on, and gives individual advice and help.I did the plotting course and then the masterclass afterwards. I'm sure you'll love it. I've taken a few Writer U classes and they've all been brilliant.

  4. Yay course day is here! Looking forward to it Rach, but then I know you can meet some great people on courses…Looks like everyone else has found it good.Looking forward to 'seeing' you there Sally!=)

  5. Ooh Caroline – I'd be REALLY looking forward to that too :)Sally and Angie – can't wait to share this journey with you.Joanne – will have to go back to your Ennegram post – somehow I seem to have missed it!

  6. You've inspired me to sign up for this, too Rach! I'll be joining a day late I suspect, but it sounds great! I did one of her courses years ago and was very impressed.
