Author's NoteA Lesson by Celeste
Just a brief introduction.
Most writers think that in order to make a good story, you only need a good plot, or "real" characters, or a unique setting. That's wrong. You need those, plus, other things as well. In this course, you will be learning about the technical aspects of writing. Which is, simply put, punctuation and grammar.
Now you might tell me that you don't need good puncutation and grammar to convey a proper story. Tell me, what would you tell a writer who wrote a story which was barely understandable due to the disorganization of his or her sentences? You might not even comprehend what the whole thing was about because you were trying so hard to discern what one sentence meant.
The technical elements of writing are just as important as the fundamental ones. You need each one in order to create a full story. Think of your story as a puzzle. In order to complete it, you need all the pieces. If you don't have proper punctuation and grammar, your puzzle will never be complete.
I decided to make a course on this because I see that some writers still have difficulty in organizing their stories, especially with punctuation and grammar. So I do hope that once you finish this course you will be able to apply whatever lessons you learned here to your own writing.
If you have any suggestions or requests on what else I should make a lesson on, feel free to drop me a line! I'll try my best to help out. c:
P.S. I'm still working on the lessons of this course. But keep checking back!
