I am beginning my first ever online class today. And I'm nervous. Isn't that funny? I guess it's because I haven't ever done a class before. I've never done any kind of writing class. (gasp!)
I missed Camy Tang's synopsis class in February and decided to order her synopsis worksheet. But I found out that she is offering a 2 week class starting today and it's only $30!!! So I promptly signed up. I am hoping to learn how to do one the proper way...one that makes sense and yet grabs the reader. :) I've heard great things about Camy and know it will be wonderful!
If you are interested, check out her Story Sensei Blog for more details.
Okay, here's something I saw on a blog recently. I am so sorry I cannot remember what blog it was, but it was so cool. Have you ever thought of a plot, or even began your WIP, only to find that there is a book published with the same plot?
Well, this video demonstrates how even with the same basic plot, your story can be wildly your own. Because you are a creative being, you can put a spin on story ideas that nobody else can. Its flavor is unique to your tastes. Its aroma carries the essence of you. Nobody can spin a tale like you can.
So watch this video and see how the same four chords can play many vastly different songs. Way cool. To each his own....
