Daily Dragon - Issue # 3
This hot reporter was hunting for knowledge besides news. Bad news is; my minions and I couldn't find an online public library I could access to (which is closing me the door to the Progressive Book Club. Sorry Mike.)
The good news is: I did find some free knowledge. I have seen "Creative Writing" mentioned more than once in my journey to become a writer. As usual, I had no idea what that was until I ran into The Crafty Writer and its Creative Writing Course -with several exercises. It is short and it is for free. I bring you the contents and their links, in case you may find something interesting as well.
Releasing your Creativity
How to Write a Short Story
Writing from a Point of View
Bringing your Writing to Life
Poetry: How to Write Poems
Markets, Competitions and Opportunities
February On-Line Workshops
There are other courses that might interest you as well, although these are not for free. They are hosted by LOW Country Romance Writers. I already took one with them last year and it was great. Price: $16 dollars (each).
1. The Character's Arc, presented by Sue Viders and Becky Martinez.
Dates: Feb 4-17
2. Plotting a Romance Series, presented by Misty Evans.
Dates: Feb 1-15
3. How to Promote your book online, presented by Karen MacMurray
Dates: Feb 1-28
4. Creating Great Villains, presented by Rayne Hall

You can register for online classes through February 1.
Misha Gericke is hosting January's Paying Forward Award. She is looking for suggestions for a better name and she is also inviting the blogger community to submit their vote on their favorite nominee. By the way, thank you to those who nominated me. It's an honor to be there after barely two months I opened the Dragon Cave to the public. My scaly self already feels like a winner among such great company. Prizes are awesome and you will find familiar names there I am sure we all will be glad to support.
Stephen Tremp wants to remind you about the Reintroduce Myself Blogfest this coming Monday. We are already seventy six and he would like to hit the one hundred mark. It won't take you much time as he is setting it to one hundred words limit, so it is not time consuming. Join us, it will be fun!
