I’ve been taking writing classes from Ed2Go through the Howard Community College in Maryland. So far I’ve taken Beginning Writer’s Workshop and Advanced Fiction Writing and now I’m taking Write Like a Pro. I’ve found them very helpful. The first focused on how you write. The second and third focus on structuring stories and how to merge story (emotional journey) with plot (the actions that move the protagonist through the story). I highly recommend them to all aspiring writers. You can find them at www.ed2go.com. They provide a venue through which you can take the courses.
Several of my stories on this blog grew out of exercises in this class. My two WiP novels both benefited greatly from the structuring methodology I learned in these courses. Check out Banjo Music and Dialogue with a Seagull for examples of class exercises run amok!
