Editor's Notes #16, December 7,2004 --Writing courses
December 07, 2004
Hello,

"True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learn'd to dance."
--Alexander Pope (1688-1744)

Thank you for your response to the question about writing courses you want. I have six topics to consider, none of which had been on my list. Here is what you asked for:

  • the differences between print and on-line publications (An excellent resource already exists for this. Please see http://www.writershelper.com/writing-courses.html and click on the link to the Net Writing Master's Course.)
  • editing novel-length books
  • how to get good editing
  • targeting publications and keeping submission records
  • the difference between showing and telling
  • describing interesting characters

      If you have any furher thoughts about these or other courses, please let me know. Your wishes in this are vital to my decision-making.
