We are preparing for several new classes at Forward Motion! Among them will be, I hope, the return of the popular Back to School for Busy Writers classes, which should restart next month. Other classes, many of them dealing with the technical side of writing, are starting to line up for this year and next.

A few weeks ago when this subject started, I knew I wanted to do some classes again. I even knew which ones I should do, but I refrained from mentioning it until the subject arose in chat yesterday.

Starting on the first Friday of 2013, I will once again begin giving the Two Year Novel Course here at FM. 2YN is a set of 104 classes from start to finish of novel writing. The classes are usually posted on Friday and run for the entire two years. The class will have its own private board where members can talk to each other about the class material and their work.

We will soon have a Back to School Board where you can request classes for that group.

We're going to have fun!

Yay for the 2-Year Novel classes! Those were so much fun. I'm really happy to see them coming back.

Back to School classes will be fun, too!

I'm really looking forward to the workshops. I was only ever able to take one, and that was the one Mar did on ideas and outlining using fairy-tales as a source. It was tremendous fun. Which reminds me, I still need to write that book!

I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I'd find it interesting to try the Two Year Novel class again (I got hung up on one step, and absurdly enough, it isn't even one of the most vital ones). But since I never got that far, my inclination would be to try to revive the novel I was working on then. I may not have made it very far, but the few things I did have were quite interesting. Is that sort of thing allowed?

Yes, you can take the classes again. And as the class material points out, this is to try different things to see if it works for you. Don't let yourself get stopped on something.

I'm looking forward to giving 2YN another try. And I'm anxious to see what the other classes are. Thanks, Zette!

Hmm, I didn't do so well when I last tried 2YN a LONG time ago. I'm a bit giddy to give it another go.

Yeh! The 2 year novel class, (even though I fell behind in the 2nd year) was invaluable to me as a writer, AND I am happy to report that I just hit 70K on that novel. I will finish it, and I owe that all to Zette's hard work and dedication to the education of writers!

Thank you,

Sara
