Essential to keep this post very brief this evening.
https://dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university/ offers a number of excellent presentations to encourage and assist bloggers learning and practise.
I decided it’s time for me to try the ‘Shaping Your Story’ course. I’m not a writer of fiction but the course content has been expanded since it’s predecessor writing201 was retired. Nowadays it includes editing practise for wider writing genres than the narrow limits of editing long-form fiction drafts – at least that’s how I remember it from looking at it back then and just knowing it wasn’t for me. Anyway I’m quite excited to set about editing some of my earlier posts. Eventually, when I make time enough, hopefully quite soon since I signed up and got my first email.
Everyday Inspiration is another recommended BloggingU course I tried a couple of times and I have plenty to go back to there for editing as per the suggested excercises. The reader tag for that email course seems pretty quiet. I suppose that’s to be expected with the nature of the excercises and it not always being appropriate to make posts in response to the editing type of activities in the same ways one might for practising the other topics..
If you haven’t already seen it there is also a free e-book https://dailypost.wordpress.com/postaday/ebook-365-writing-prompts/
and there are a few more here too https://dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university-ebooks/
As for me, I’m taking evasive action (the 365writing prompt for 6th May) and escaping for some time out before returning later with a post for the letter F and whatever something else for that e-book prompt of the day, if not here, elsewhere. Today’s half-full or half-empty glass prompt eludes me post eleven-PM.
