Have you wanted to write a Romance Novel, begun it and then just didn’t feel confident enough to keep on going? Did you have questions you couldn’t resolve for yourself? Or did you have an idea but didn’t know where to begin? Maybe you worked your way through the first draft, but you feel it just needs something?
It’s been said many times in many ways, “the most effective way to learn to write is to WRITE.”In this class, writing is what you’ll do.
As with most things in life, writing for any venue takes a lot of practice.
There is, however, another element, one which is elusive.As Somerset Maughm said, “there are three rules for writing the novel.Unfortunately no one knows what they are.”This kind of leaves the field wide open and since, as any writer will tell you, anything one tells you may be countermanded by another writer’s method, it’s all about finding your own voice.
