My name is: Jessi
I teach: A lot of things, primarily related to writing
Why I signed up for The Great eCourse Adventure: I’m looking to create my first e-course to provide added value to my Facebook community of creative writers.
What kind of e-course I want to create: I’m not sure yet. I want to tackle some part of the creative writing process, or maybe do an epic course that covers the entire thing. Still ruminating.
What makes me come most alive is: Getting into the flow of my own writing and seeing reader reactions when I throw them for a loop.
Welcome to the Campfire Jessi. I love reading your passion for writing (I bet your audience loves reading your work too). I can’t wait to see what kind of creative solutions you come up with for Creative writers.
You’ve probably used it or heard of it before, but I”ll mention it just in case. Have you used Scrivener? Originally it was what we were going to use as our “Journal” tool before deciding on Evernote. It’s such a great resource and my thoughts are that you could use it as a way to deliver your course content and exercises. Although evernote has been pretty freaking awesome as well.
So happy to have you on the trail with us. Let us know if and when you need support. We’re here to help make the journey easier, more fun and creative.
There are so many possibilities for a creative writing eCourse! I know I for one would enjoy one for the casual writer, although you may be looking for more serious students…
I’m also a fan of Scrivener! I’m not even a writer writer and it is just so well organized for putting stories and such together, I use it for scripts. I wish I could use it more effectively though, and it seems like it would be a great way to outline an eCourse…Love some tips on that Bradley when we get to that point 🙂
Glad you’ve already checked out Scrivener.
Just note, you can do a lot of the same organizational pieces with Evernote. Plus if you’re going to use it as a teaching tool, you need to consider people will have to pay money for it. This was another key reason we went with Evernote — it’s free!
There are a lot of amazing free or small priced tutorials on Scrivener. Like you, I probably only understand half of what’s possible there.
Let’s learn together!!
So nice to meet you here. I wish you the best with your writing and hope this course flows so beautifully for you.
I’m also a writer, although that’s not why I’m here (MFA, in the dark ages).
Scrivener is a tool I wouldn’t do without. My introduction to it was on a four-year massive research and writing project. I would have caved under the weight of the thing without Scrivener.
It’s probably *not* the tool for this course, but wow is it valuable.
