    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You are allowed to be as creative as you like. The sky is the limit. Just let your mind flow and tell a story you never thought you would be able to write. You will be amazed at the stories you can create. I love free writing and creating something unique.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to use my own experiences to create something unique. Whether it was a story directly related to myself or someone I knew. I learned how to use real raw emotions to create a story everyone loved to read.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open. Do not be scared to write a story. If you have a writers block then look to great creative authors to gain inspiration. Some times it can take awhile to formulate a story, but dont give up. Look to family and friends to gain inspiration.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helps aspiring writers to really develop their skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to show character in four different ways, how to show and not tell the reader when writing, what advice may work best for you as a writer, the differences between novel and short story writing, and the importance of dialog in a story.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students in this course to stay on top of their writing exercises! Even if you aren't that excited by some of them, it is important that you do them. Each exercise builds off the previous so it is imperative that you do all of them! Also, read your novel or short stories.
