Becoming a student
I have FINALLY bitten the bullet and booked a writing course. This will be the first writing course I've signed up to (if you exclude the one day freelance course I did) and I am super excited. I had originally planned to take a Novel and Short Story writing course with The Writers Bureau but then I decided to take a look at the OU. Not sure why I hadn't looked on their site before really. Anyways I am going to take the Start Writing Fiction course which is a three month course starting in October and it is with the aim to start writing short stories better than I do as I feel I tend not to have any discipline or follow any kind of structure. My writing becomes quite confusing as a result and I know it could be a lot better given some more help and advice. I will see how it progresses and then who knows, I may even study for a Diploma but right now I am itching to get started and can't wait until October.
