Another course!

Last day of July and I must say I’m glad to see the back of it, cos August is RWA Oz Conference and I absoluely completely CANNOT wait. Catching up with good writing buddies, talking writing ALL weekend, learning heaps, hanging out in a swish hotel, having the odd wine… can’t think of much better! Hopefully I’ll remember to actually USE my camera this year and take lots of pics.

August is also a course month for me. Yep, I’ve enrolled in yet another online course. This one is with the fabulous Shirley Jump and its entitled ”Take Your Book From Good To Sold.” I thought that as I seem to have relative success with M&B eds, I needed something to take me over the line. Hopefully Shirley’s course will be another step in the right direction. And I’m doing it with my good writing friend Becca J Heath, so at least I’ll be in good company!

Anyone else coming to Oz or taken any good courses lately?

  1. Oh enjoy Rach! Shirley's stuff is always so informative, I'm sure you'll learn heaps. I had considered doing this one too, but August is just a bad month.

  2. And just reading Lacey's comment, Shirley gives lectures, you submit work and homework and she crits it and shows where you could improve it. All very valuable stuff, much recommended!

  3. Yay on conf!!

    Course sounds great, too. I'd love to do that one, but I'm already doing a self editing course with Carina's Angela James during the first couple of weeks of August.

  4. The course sounds great. I love Shirley Jump and her own struggle to be published is interesting and inspiring. I'd love to hear how it's going at the conference. 12 more sleeps…

  5. Thanks Janette – can't wait to see you again 🙂

    Ooh Anita good to know. I've never done a course with her before.
