Course DescriptionNo more waiting. It's time to act on your lifelong dream of becoming a published writer. This course with Simon & Schuster and Putnam/Berkeley novelist Michael Levin gives the background, basics, and steps you need to start writing immediately. Among the many dimensions of writing explored are understanding the writing--and rewriting--process, finding good ideas and turning them into stories, discovering what makes stories saleable, believing in yourself as a writer and sustaining that belief for a lifetime. In addition, Mr. Levin covers mastering the art of self-motivation, finding a writing community to keep yourself going, discovering how fiction becomes a tool through which you can express what's in your soul, learning the purposes of fiction--why we write and why people read, and inviting success into your writing life.
