Udemy.com is having a 90% off sale on all their courses. They have courses on writing. 

A guy I follow posted a small list of useful courses. I'm sharing them here.

But the sale ends in one day. I'm getting a bunch in fields I want to specialize in.

Hello all,

Thanks for letting me join the group. I'm so excited my first novel will be coming in April. Right now I'm still back and forth with my editor, and I am waiting for the cover to be finished. Are there any individuals here who are editors, good with cover design, and marketing. I have three other novels that I want to publish this year as well

I have a group of 100 members on BlackJunction.com called WritersAuthors&Bloggers Promo. Basically, I want you to post there and promote your works. Only one story a day, same story once a week. 

https://blackjunction.com/WritingPromotionGroup'

Show the world of BlackJunction what you've been working on, no matter how old it is! Unless it's awful, in which case, don't share it.

Editing is of utmost importance. I have also started a web page with Weebly. Trying to find as much time as I can to work on that.

Comment by Miriam Ruff on May 1, 2017 at 8:48am

I am an editor as well as a writer, and I would be interested in helping edit/proof anyone's work. Editing is an absolutely critical part of the writing process. You can find out more about me and see samples at www.bumbershootwriting.com.

Comment by Cedric Crawley on May 1, 2017 at 2:48am
Thus is absolutely true. I proofread each of my manuscripts in excess of 7-8 times all the way through. I still find slight spelling, grammatical, or clarity issues. An editor - one you trust to appreciate your writing style and voice, but at the same time to be tough and constructively critical - is essential for a serious writer.
Comment by Thomas Lee Howell on April 29, 2017 at 11:46am

I work as a script doctor and manuscript editor. I have helped over a hundred fellow writers since 1999.

Comment by Crystal Skye on September 3, 2016 at 7:38am

Ok thanks Wolfgang. Will be searching for an editor!

Comment by H. Wolfgang Porter on September 2, 2016 at 9:13pm

Crystal, you definitely need to get an editor or at the minimum a good proofreader. There's no way you'll catch everything 'cause you're too close to the work. Even when you set it down for a while and come back to it, you'll catch some things but stuff will slip by. An editor's job is to catch stuff and ask questions as to whether you 'mean what you say' on the page and offer suggestions to 'say it' in a manner that will be more succinct to readers.

Comment by Crystal Skye on September 2, 2016 at 7:37am

Thank you Patricia and H. Wolfgang!

You I have some beta readers. At this point I don't have an editor since I am self-publishing... I had to leave a writer's critique group because of how they critiqued. 

I will stick with beta readers (and pouring over my work several times) One of them is my closest friend who can be brutally honest. lol.  I feel blessed about that.

Once again thank you!

Musings?

Posted by Kwesi Adebisi on January 23, 2019 at 8:28am 0 Comments

As I was saying, I am currently realm-building. The task is to include elements of classical fantasy, but remain primarily sci-fi, specifically cyberpunk. There will be multiple planets/dimensions, and the general populace will be humans with enhancements (some without). The enhancements will include cybernetics, biological experiments, and even some mystical attainments. Again, I'm paring down the details, but the majority of the details are worked out. One main character has been confined for hundreds of years by his rival. Neither can die, and the one confined is found to be simply allowing the circumstance while gathering energy and awaiting certain events before acting.

My main distraction is the fact that I'm about to be released from prison this year. I'm at a work-release center now, and have limited access to the computer. Not to mention no spare time to get down and hash out more details. I have to obtain employment and whatnot while I'm here. Arg. Patience…

I would give an intricate, wordy introduction, but there are some hinderances. I am currently realm-building for a debut series, but life has a way of taking priority. One day, I will have the availability I need. My next one will be more detailed, rest assured.

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
