I have been working in the field of online learning for over a decade now and I am enjoying my current ‘rewirement’ phase as a time to reflect. My time stretches out in front of me now like a silvered pathway into unknown adventures and I am keen to start my journey into creative writing online.
One of my educational pastimes is ‘creative writing’ and I recently enrolled in a Creative Writing course with Open Colleges. I did this to help provide some structure, momentum and support for my fictional writing in 2015. This type of writing is still ‘new’ to me and as it does not always have a ‘project’, as did my educational writing – with all of the structure that projects provide – I wanted to put that structure in place to help with my creativity.
Day One: March 18, 2015
I am happy to say that after a few days of waiting, my enrolment is in order and I am now able to access the Open Space for gathering my learning materials, communicating with my peers and submitting my assessments. In the space of an hour or so, I had successfully navigated to ‘90720 Creative Writing Study Period 1′. This was an easy and stress free process and I was able to access, download and print my first useful resources.
I want to be able to share my learning along the way so I have chosen to publish my ‘journal’ of creative writing, right here.
