If you’ve ever thought about taking my Short Story Mechanics class–either at LitReactor.com—or as is noted here, at Storyville in the “At Your Own Pace” version, you may want to read this blog post by Keily. This thrills me to no end. This is why I teach.
“Personally, I was shocked by how much I’d improved. My settings had more detail, my first lines became actual hooks, I had a nice refresher on conflict and tension, and I finally understood the theme/mood portion of writing. This class allowed me to piece together things that my creative writing instructors have been trying to drill into my head for a long time, and I am thrilled with the results. It doesn’t matter what genre you write in, or what level you’re at. This can be a helpful beginner’s course or a wonderful refresher for the experienced writer.”
Totally made my day, my week—hell, in this environment, quite possibly my year. LOL. Be safe out there!
