    Fambly,

    It's time to think about restructuring this course. As you know it's been a while since we've had any actual writing instruction. I've rescheduled twice to make the time more suitable for folks but that doesn't seem to have helped.

    Now I am open to your suggestions. Don't tell me what you think it is important for me to teach. Tell me what you think it is important for you to learn. I am here to serve and I will give you what you want.

    Love yawl :grouphug:

    Question

    This is about writing right? All types?

    I would like help in characterization, description, and overall story flow.

    I'd be more than happy to teach even one student who is willing to learn these things. To get started you may want to note how these three elements are handled in my story "The Listening Heart."
