    Writer Meetup On Hold 

    So a few folks have written to me interested in attending today’s meetup, but the 1pm time isn’t good for them. That, and that I’ve not been able to actually run SL on my PC for nearly 2 full days, makes me think we must postpone til further notice.
    No matter. See you around the blogosphere.

    Challenge for Writers 

    Hello again. I’ve just discovered there is an international writing challenge for may called, ‘A Story Everyday in May’. If any of you are interested 🙂 I thought perhaps Microfiction in May would be a lovely tweak, that being short fiction of 1,000 words or less – makes it easier. If anyone is interested, doesn’t have to be a campus challenge, or even shared w/ us. But a good exercise for personal/creative growth.’  🙂

    Writers Meetup 


    Hi writers. Let’s get together for some jazz and poetry. How about Wednesday May 6th at 1PM SLT – Tullia 1? A tentative first meeting for 45 mins or an hour and see how it goes. Anyone who wants to share work, discuss our current projects. Perhaps do some activities. Open to suggestions. In any case, I want to see your faces! So come 🙂

    Free Online Writing Course 

    Hi there. Elle brought this to our attention a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to remind everyone that The Open University is offering a free creative writing course online for the month of May (it began yesterday). There are a few things to do each week (5 minute video, short paragraph to read, and writing exercises – with opportunity to post them for feedback), totaling around 3 hours. You can join or leave at any time, and aren’t compelled to finish each section if you want to jump around. I am going to give it a shot. I’m a little busy for getting into it hardcore, but I’d like to keep the creative juices flowing. If you’d like to join here is a link https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/start-writing-fiction and maybe you can share your written exercises on MU/Stories?? 😉

      I completed this course just before getting involved with MU. Its fantastic! And very flexible how involved you want to get. I will say that realistically I spent much more time with the course than their estimation, but I was doing all the tasks and reading/responding to other peoples work daily. Definitely an enriching experience and there are loads of other great courses too!

      Awesome! Glad to hear some positive feedback from someone who has done it before!

    • Oona 15:34 on 01/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

      This looks like a great course. Thank you for reminding us Astrid! 🙂 🙂 If I wasn’t so anti-writing I might actually get my act together. hehe

        LOL Oona, you are in the creative writing department. I think it’s just so easy to get distracted!
