As I mentioned previously, I write better (or more or, period) when I have structure and deadlines. I take writing classes mostly online (some live, some self-paced) to provide myself with both. So in the next couple of weeks I’m taking a single-session class on doing research in fiction and on revising. I signed up for a six-week novel outlining class (because I’m stuck on mine) and a four-week class on writing about disabilities (because it’s what my work-in-progress is about) that begin in September and October respectively.
I’m a little worried that I’m setting myself up for failure because I signed up for classes that overlap. I’ve done that before, and it was messy even though I turned in my work on time. But, while I’m certain the outlining class will be taught again, I’m not sure that the disabilities class will, which is why I want to take advantage of it.
We’ll see how it goes.
