Well, I just did another search for free writing courses.. Actually i searched this time: free writing workshops online and found this site.
It looks like a fun site! I like the idea of a Paragraph-a-Day in their Tools section. I have to join though to see everything. I’m curious what their exercises entail. Its free to join, i like the idea of writing! It’s just I’m a newbie at writing. I’ve done some haiku poems and get ideas for writing something… And I’ve written a few lines in Google+ with writing prompts I see posted. I just want to grow and actually become a writer. Even just for myself. I find myself enjoying what I’m writing.. Even if its a blog post like this.
Im just going to copy and paste now what they have on their page about what they’re about:
- Critique Circle is an online writing workshop for all authors, whether they write literary fiction, genre fiction, articles or short stories. Our purpose is to provide a place for writers to give and receive feedback on their work, and thereby learn from one another. The Critique Circle also includes forums as well as helpful writing tools for manuscript progress, submission tracking, character generation and more.
Workshops can be an invaluable resource to writers as they are a great way to get feedback and suggestions on their manuscripts, as well as providing a social forum for interaction with other writers. Online workshops such as the Critique Circle have the added advantage of being accessible at any time and from any location regardless of geography.
Membership to the Critique Circle is free and we welcome everyone interested in using an online forum to improve their writing skills while helping others improve theirs. Critique Circle is open to all genres, including science-fiction, fantasy, romance, children’s novels, horror and suspense.
We’ve endeavored to make Critique Circle as writer-friendly and secure as possible. People have full control over their submissions, including the ability to either hide them from all other users or delete them at any time. People can also choose to have the stories only visible to those who regularly critique, or those who have critted in the past month. We believe this feature will make people feel more secure about using the critique forum.
Those supporting the Critique Circle also have the option to form their own private critique groups, integrated into the global critique system. *
Problem is I’m not an author. But I would like to improve my writing and use the exercises in their tools section. It sounds like an interesting place to join.
I’m thinking of a different username to use then what I usually create. It has to be different then my name here or the previous one I used here, or even my twitter name. I’ll think of something.
For now i just wanted to save this info here.
I gotta take my pup out now..
