Let’s Write! creative writing classes

Hi. Please visit my Let’s Write! website at LetsWrite.com for more info.

Let’s Write! creative writing classes are for anyone who wants to write, whether new at it or if you’ve been writing for years.  Fiction or nonfiction, it doesn’t matter, though I admit I prefer working with fiction. However, nonfiction uses most, if not all, the same aspects we use for fiction.

I love helping people find their voice and give life to their stories. We all have stories. Life is all about stories.  After all, there is not much difference between fiction and nonfiction in the end, is there? :- )

If you are interested in writing classes, at fees you can afford, post a comment and let me know, and … Let’s Write!

Take care of yourself and don’t take anything too seriously.

I Haven’t Given Up on This Novel!

Hi. This is a much-delayed note to say–in case you were wondering–I haven’t given up on this novel.  I’ve been meaning to write here but have been sidetracked (to put it VERY mildly).  I am still working on this novel.  I had finished it for my MFA degree in creative writing and several people have read it in that “finished” (not) form.

I got some wonderful feedback on it, where readers really felt my characters to be real people (which they are–in my imagination–but then what’s really “real,” anyway, right?).

Both as a result of feedback and also my own continuing nagging feeling (coming from the characters) that this book wasn’t done, and that I had major revisions to make, I have begun to do just that—REVISE on a major level, though the essential story of the book is the same.  The excerpts on this site will essentially remain unchanged, but the later chapters and scenes will be a bit different.

But I am not necessarily posting as I revise, since revision does not usually happen chronologically. But eventually, this novel will reemerge, when its time is here.

Part of the delay is that I have begun various versions of the possibilities of a second novel (no, not a sequel), though with the revisions, a sequel some have asked for to Archangel shouldn’t be necessary.

Well, take care and thanks for visiting.

PS– Danny & Co. say hi!  :- )
