Aren’t all my posts just my opinion? I’m supposed to critique something or give my opinion on a topic. I don’t like critiquing things (except punctuation and grammar of course – I love that!) but I do have a lot of opinions about a lot of things.
Today though, I think I’ll discuss this writing course. I’m enjoying it immensely. While many of the prompts are recycled, (I did many of them before in the Writing101 course), I am enjoying seeing how my responses have changed since I did the last course 2 years ago. I guess that means that I’ve grown, which is not really surprising considering the things that have happened in those two years. I think I’ve become much more comfortable writing from the heart, and also much more comfortable just being myself.
I took up this course in an effort to become more active here in WordPress, like I was two years ago. I’ve missed the community. I’ve missed my posting schedule, interacting with people every day. And I’ve especially missed writing very, very much. I haven’t ventured into a proper short story yet, I’m still a little daunted by it, but I’m getting very close.
One thing I would change about this course is the self-paced structure. While I enjoy being able to post whenever I feel like it, I do really miss the community of doing the same course alongside my fellow classmates. I miss the camaraderie of a group of people all doing the same prompts at the same time. I had a great time last time and met some amazing people who I am so happy to have reconnected with since starting this course this time around.
I do recommend this course – Finding Everyday Inspiration. It’s a great way to get (back) into the habit of writing more often. The prompts are interesting enough and the resource pages give you a couple of different options for approaching the prompt in case you want to try something a little different.
I hope you’re enjoying coming along this little writing journey with me. I’m very happy to be here 😊
