Prompt #2 – Learning my craft

Learning my craft

The second prompt for the Author Writing Challenge is:

What kinds of classes, programs, or workshops have you taken to hone your skill as a writer? What sorts of exercises did/do you use to improve your craft? Have you ever taught a writing class or workshop?

I’ll start with the last question first. I have never taught a writing class or workshop. Maybe it’s something that will happen one day, you never know.

I started studying journalism at uni when I finished high school, many moons ago. The degree was left unfinished and life got in the way.

Last year, I attended a workshop about children’s books, and I have just signed up to go back to uni, starting next semester. This time I’m studying Creative Writing.

Another thing that I have been doing to get me writing again is participate in challenges and online writing groups. These include weekly writing prompts and challenges such as 12×12 in 12 to write picture books.

All these things are getting me writing and helping me reach my dream.
