My first Writing Course is now complete. There is no exam, and I handed in the last assignment early. The final mark is a 92%.
But also Boo!
I enjoyed the course and how I could see it improve my writing. More than I felt the course I took in high school did. It was more organized and had a more definitive focus. Both classes had their pros and cons, however, Writer’s Craft (high school) I was able to interact with others and bounce ideas off each other, it was a group learning environment and was by far my favourite class I ever took in high school.
This course was online and had zero interaction with other people, but I enjoy learning and teaching myself (in a matter of speaking) and overall both courses benefited me and my writing.
As sad as I am to finish the course, I’ll be happy to move onto the next or just something else completely.
Writing Course Introduction: Creative Writing: Online Course
This week I’ve been kind of stumped as to what to write. A lot has been going on recently, personally, and it’s been difficult to focus on something that I plan on sharing with other’s that won’t be depressing. So I’m just going to write and see how this blog post turns out.
Like I said a lot has been going on recently, my sister if you’ve glided over to her Youtube Channel at all, talks a lot of depression and mental health issues because she too is dealing with anxiety and depression. And while I have shared a bit about my own struggle with anxiety and I think have mentioned my own bout of depression, I’ve never gone in-depth not wanting to share too much online.
However, I think people learn from other’s stories, I know I have and would like to share my own, not every little detail, but overall the experience and what I gained from it.

Week 6, already, only five more weeks to go…
This week’s focus for my Writing Course was tone and style, as well as description. And of course, the first part of the assignment we had to differentiate between Tone and Style, and I found this to be really difficult because in order to write well, you need both. Style develops overtime as you get better at writing, you find your own voice/style as a writer, and tone sets the mood of the writing, but I believe that you almost always have both in a single piece of writing and I had to somehow distinguish between the two, I did it, and I’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.
