Writing : What, Where, How – Types, Ways, Platforms
- No experience required. Only being open to new info, as well as being ready to get that research kit on.
The ultimate resource course for those who want to write, yet are not sure how to begin or where to inspire from.
As an author, during conversations with people I tend to hear this reoccurring sentence – “I wish to write, but I’m not sure what about”, or “I want to write, but I’m not that good at it”, or “I’d write, but I don’t think it would be much”.
And that, quite frankly, saddens me. We all have stories to tell, to share, ideas that we want to spread or some great pieces we’re capable of creating – maybe new best seller that will be adapted into new movie or series! Who knows.
But because of that “not sure” situation – many great stories are lost along the way of that very shabby train of thoughts.
So because of that very shabby train, I devised a plan to get it off-rails and make a new and better vehicle for transporting that idea pool of greatness.
This course is created to give insights into the field of writing: what kinds of writing is out there, where is that all used.
What genres of writing exists in the world and how to maybe try out what suits more for you?
Not all of us are there for endless romance, some are more about mysteries and detective stories. Some make gothic and lewd things – but how does one know where to direct self with all that?
So here is the overview of what length of writing one can manage, as well as what lengths of writing is what.
Why novel and novelette are absolutely different and how is different script form from book form… What the heck is web novel?
Where do people post their things? What platforms to use? Do we abuse social media with storm of our creations? Where does one find how to make cover art? What do you mean there’s different types of cover art?! What the heck do literary agents and publishers do? Why does it take ages for them to reply and why do we need to know that?
Publishing through publishing house, indie publishing and self-publishing – what’s the difference and how do we make profit?
Audio books – what is this evil sorcery and why so pricey?
There are a lot more things that are talked about in this course.
Exactly all that to find out the needed approach to writing, to topics and genre that one feels will fit their Cinderella foot, the ways to make more with that and where to get help, what online resources are available and how to conquer that mad world of words, how to note to self, what emotional things to look out for and what other things are there in the world of being an author…
