Start Writing Fiction

Earlier this year I completed the Start Writing Fiction course run by the Open University via FutureLearn. It is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) open to participants worldwide and it is FREE!

It is an eight week course with a requirement of approximately three hours of participation per week. As the course is run online this gives great flexibility to how, when and where you study. The main focus is creating characters and idea development exercises.

I found the course to be thought-provoking, fun and highly interactive – I learned a lot from other participants as well as the course itself.

Over the next week I will share examples of my work written for this particular course and also my key learnings and random lightbulb moments!
