Lesson 2 Developing Ideas - Free Online Writing Classes for New Writers

Lesson 2 - IDEAS - Look at your notes. Is there anything interesting you would like to write more about?  Add ideas to your notes. Be creative. Maybe you wrote a note about this great dessert you ate. Add more details about how good it was. Or be creative and write about how the dessert comes to life and tries to eat you! Or maybe the dessert gives you superpowers. Have fun with your notes. Be wacky. Be weird. Just have fun playing with new ideas.

ASSIGNMENT 2A: Expand on as many of your notes as possible by adding new and creative ideas to each. Save these notes for lesson 3.

ASSIGNMENT 2B: Post in the blog comments about some of your favorite writers and why you like their writing.


OPTIONAL BONUS: Respond to a post by another student and discuss writing. Keep the posts positive and supportive. Students who are negative toward other students will not receive a certificate or instructor feedback at the end of the class.
