Firstly thank-you for all the inspirational tips last week I shall definitely be trying some of them out.
This week we are celebrating one year to the day since our move to our new house and new departement of France, so we have Kir Royale [sparkling wine and creme de cassis] plus a selection of viennoiseries[croissants, pain au raisin, pain au chocolat] and for the sober ones amongst us there is coffee and tea[builders or herbal]. Sorry I forgot the tea last week!
Todays question is very straightforward, I am considering taking an online Creative Writing course as one way of getting my work critiqued by someone I don't know but who will be constructive. So if any of you can recommend a short[i.e. not expensive] course that you have either done yourself or are involved in I would appreciate it. It has to be online for obvious reasons! My level is fairly basic, "O" level English Lit and voracious reading of all Classic and Modern novels.
Part B of my question is can you also recommend any "How to" books that you have found particularly useful and/or inspiring. I have read Stephen Kings "On Writing" but that is about it and there are so many books of this type that it would be very easy to get sidetracked. I don't want to spend all my time reading rather than actually writing, but I do think the best books could be useful.
So basically I am hoping that you will do some of the legwork for me in weeding out the chaff.
We are off to Carcassonne for lunch today and to buy an extra window for our house so I shall look forward to reading all your suggestions later.
Have a good weekend everyone.
