The E-write lessons! Learn how to write in simple steps

Picture of The E-write lessons! Learn how to write in simple steps
Hello great wide world.

This is my entry in the teachers contest

I am a distance education student- my school is based 300km from my home and i am sent schoolwork via email and mail.
I also write novels as a pastime and wanted to teach other teenagers the wonders of writing.
But, when the nearest teenager is over thirty kilometers away, how would i do it?
And voila! E-write was born

E-write or Email Writing lessons teaches others how to express themselves via the marvelous form of writing novels in only THREE EMAILS

To this day three students have passed the e-write lessons
Two in novice-One in experienced
My furthest student lives 1000km away


So, now sit back and learn a great art without any long term commitments or exams!!!

Also, my apologies. I take great pride in my writing but i suck at drawing!!! 

AND if you like writing, join my group- wackywriters

Step 1: Getting Started

Picture of Getting Started
Firstly
You need something to write with and upon
This is simply personal preference but there are many options

Pen and paper- This is a cost free and good back-to-basics option. Choose a good sized notebook, as this keeps it in order and its so satisfying to hold your hard work in your own two hands. Choose a pen that your comfortable with, as when the spell of writing takes over you can be writing for ages and the last thing you need is a pen low on ink or one that hurts your hand.

Laptops-Portable, easy to store so many different stories and no worries about untidy handwriting. These are great to carry around with you in case the writing bug hits on long road trips or holidays.

PC- Wonderful for simply sitting and writing.choose a program that you understand and are comfortable using. You can also email others your work for review!!!


Of course there are many other options-find one that suits you!!

That's an awesome idea. If you learn to publish ebooks, I bet you could even turn this into a little side business. Learn to write + get published = send small sums of money to AussieAnglerGal.
