somuchtowritesolittletime2

Roxanne Crouse of SoMuchToWriteSoLittleTime.com provides guest posts for authors to talk about their writing process. She provides posts on writing, and her own journey towards publishing, and you can find her work at her Author page on Amazon.

This post includes Dale Grove, who published Gray Maneuvers , a sci-fi novel on mind-control technology.

I’ve read a number of his short stories, and find his style and copious amount ideas confirm we’ll be seeing more of his writing in the coming years.

Writer Wednesday: Education Portal (Free Writing Courses)!

education-portal

I found this site, Education Portal in my search for free classes for my son, when I found this page on writing courses- all free! I’m certain some of my readers would be interested.

Hey, its free, right?

One course that interests me is How to Find the Short Story Within Your Novel and this page on College Composition. Oddly enough, I think my son might glean something from the courses as well.

I might try a few of them myself, and even checkout the Free Marketing Courses offered by online sites.

Some courses also offer CLEP testing, which enables you to earn college credits.
