Personal Challenge (Part 1 – Game On!)

So, back in January, as part of the whole this-is-the-year-I’m-going-to-chase-my-dream extravaganza I enrolled in a creative writing class, which began two weeks ago. Now, when I enrolled I presumed I would have got precisely nowhere by the time the course commenced (many would argue that this is still true – many would then get a wet raspberry blown at them 😉 ). I certainly never envisioned having already penned half a novel and having five shorts accepted for publication by now.

So, I have decided to set myself a little personal challenge. As well as learning new things from the course, and completing the assignments as well as I can, I’m going to attempt to recoup the cost by (hopefully) selling the stories I write as assignments… This is a big personal challenge, and one I will likely fail, as I intend to experiment with different genres and styles, step out of my “comfort zone”, as it were. But I’m nothing if not game for a challenge…

So, to date:

One assignment set and completed.

One submission sent and pending.

Cost of course = £70

Earnings from selling assignments = £0

 

Can I do this?? Am I crazy?? Probably no, and yes, in that order. But hey, watch this space and I’ll let you know!
