Learning my lessons (#MFRWAuthor)

How can it be August already? This is the 31st week in the blog challenge. The prompt is “When I’m not writing, I…”

To be honest, when I am not writing I am often feeling guilty about not writing. I spend a lot of time trying to learn new things, so that’s not a bad thing, right? Some of my favorite people and resources are:

MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) provided on sites such as  Coursera and FutureLearn. You can find classes in almost anything that interests you. They are free unless you want to get an official certificate.

Sam Bennett at The Organized Artist Company has paid programs using concepts from her books Start Right Where You Are and Get It Done, but she is also generous with free online encouragement. She advocates spending fifteen minutes a day working on whatever your chosen project is, and she’s right. You can get an awful lot done.

Donna Kozik  is the creator of “Write a Book in a Weekend.” Besides her paid coaching services, she too is generous with free webinars. Most recently, she has coordinated two community book projects like Success Is Yours.

Joan Stewart puts out a very helpful free newsletter twice a week on all things publicity.

Dr. Judith Briles organizes a cruise for writers which I would love to go on. Maybe some day. She also produces a helpful newletter and webinars.

And last, but certainly not least, The Writing Gals, whose podcasts are filled with information for authors.
