My e-course launches in one week! [Video]
Hello, folks! Today, I’m posting a video of my face (Yes! The Real Me™) talking to your face about my new e-course on editing your own prose (fiction or non-fiction).
All the online gurus tell you to get your hair and make-up professionally done, and then go to some high-end store to shop for some alluring fashions that scream “fun but not too fun!” or something.
Then you’re supposed to get ALL TEH PROFESSIONAL LIGHTINGZ ETC.
Feh to all that, sez I. I want you to see me in my natural habitat (my wee dining room where I love the light), and to see me how I look most days. Sorta with it, and talking off the cuff. This is the authentic me right here.
As promised in the video, here’s the course menu again:
Module 1: Lessons: Welcome! Basic formatting in Word. Correcting obvious errors Word points out. Reading with your eyeballs.
Module 2: Lessons: Fact checking. Easy trims. Plot and character consistency.
Module 3: Lessons: Clichés. Adverbs. Hyperbole.
Module 4: Lessons: Point of view and head jumping. Passive and active voices. Superhuman eyeballs.
Module 5: Lessons: Unnecessary phrases/words including dialogue starters. Specific words vs. generalizations. Showing vs. telling. Foreshadowing vs. telegraphing.
Module 6: Lessons: Quoting and permissions. Tense. WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?! Punctuation. Final read-through.
BONUS! I forgot to answer the questions, “What the hell is Sheriff Woody doing there? Are you just a child grown older?”
Okay, I admit I wrote those two questions myself. The answers are: he goes with me pretty much everywhere, and YES!
BONUS #2! When you’ve completed the course, you’ll see me in a goodbye video. That same weird art is behind my head in that video too. At the very end, I explain it. It has a good story.
