Another writerly bucket list item is being crossed off! Right now, I’m taking an online writing course with Gotham Writer’s Workshop. They have many courses to choose from, and I chose Character Development. I think that characters are the most important part of a story. Yes, plot is also essential, but if readers don’t care about your characters, they won’t care about the plot, no matter how great it is.
I’m in the second week of the three-week course, and I have learned some great tips. I look forward to using them in future works! I’m also enjoying the homework assignments, though they are challenging.
This month I’ve been trying to get back my writing mojo, and this course is a part of that effort. I figured that learning something new would excite me and get the creative juices flowing! So far, so good!
