A new UBC writing course


https://www.edx.org/course/how-to-write-a-novel-structure-outline

I can’t wait to start this new UBC writing course. I’ve been looking for the motivation to get working on my next romance novel re-write. It’s a daunting task. On my editor friend’s advice, I removed the storyline that I had initially based my story on and focus on a plot I had as a secondary mention.

So, here I am, looking at my manuscript at arm’s length, wondering what the hell do I do now! LOL. Where do I start? Do I tear it up and start over? Do I go scene-by-scene and start changing things hoping that it will make sense when I come out the other side?

She suggested I redo my heroine’s and hero’s GMC (Goal, Motivation & Conflict) to fit the new storyline. Okay, check!

Next is to do a plot outline. Start with the heroine, who is my main character, and then do one for the hero. Okay… Ummm… Well…

NOPE!

So here I sit this Sunday morning, scrolling through Facebook, when a writing group that I belong to (BC Writers, Authors & Editors) posted the above link.

I wasn’t looking for it. I think it found me.

Let’s say it’s the kick in the pants I’ve been waiting for to start working on a story I think about every day but can’t seem to find the motivation or desire to begin.

Look out, March 1st! I’ll be there will bells on!

And maybe I’ll see one of you there? Go ahead and take a look at the course description; it’s going to be great.
