I still haven't done the work for the courses I signed up for a couple of months ago, but - as I said back then - there's no submissions required, so I can do them whenever I want to. I do read through each lesson before transfering it to a word document and filing it away in my "coursework" folder though. Anyway, there are loads I still want to do on there, so I figured I should get myself signed up for another batch. At least then I can gather up all the stuff to do when I'm ready. My plan is to collect up all the courses I want to do, then set a "coursework time" for myself when I work on them for a certain amount of time each day. But, first I want to get all the ones I want to do; while they're all definately still available and free! So, this time I signed up for:
Childrens (2 - 8) Picture Book Writing
Childrens' Story Writing
Creating Great Fictional Characters
Creating Great Plots
Defamation: Writer Beware
Dialogue For Writers
I signed up for them early this morning, so I should start getting the lessons through in the next couple of days. Then, as before, when I have all of the lessons for these ones I can sign up for another batch. I could sign up for all the courses I want at once, but it's easier to keep track of them in smaller batches than it is when you have a huge stack of them to sort through at any given time. Yes, it takes longer to get them all this way, but it also takes less time to sort through my e-mails each day this way. Besides, I have to have help with signing up because of word verification, and people tend to get a bit fed up of, "OK, ready for another word verification," after a bit, and I don't want to be annoying if I can avoid it.
In case you're wondering - since I have been asked about this by a couple of people - no, I haven't been watching all these movies and reading all these books back to back. The stacks of reviews I've been posting recently (and most of the movie and book reviews still waiting to get published) are the ones I kept mentioning that were stacking up in "draft" on my dashboard. I have added a few new ones to them (both books and movies), but most of them are ones I watched late last year or right at the start of this year. They aren't in any spacific order though, you're just getting them in the order I grabbed them when I decided I needed to get them posted so started scheduling them to go up any day there wasn't a holiday or a birthday happening.
Hope you're having a fantastic weekend...
