Hello, Write Owls! Welcome to Day 31, the final day of Storytelling 101. Congratulations! You made it to the end. I hope you learned about craft and the writing process during the past month. If you’re just starting out with writing, I hope you feel prepared to write your first draft. If you have some experience with writing, I hope these lessons helped you better understand your craft so you can improve your already-written stories and write even better stories in the future.
I will be adding a new page to my website (jlweinmeister.com) with writer resources. I will post links to AuthorTube videos and references to craft books. I will only include references I personally use and support—not all resources are good! I’ll note which resources I don’t recommend, too, so you don’t waste your time and money on them.
There will be more camps in the future. Some will have different writing content, and others will have more in-depth discussions of the material from Storytelling 101. The next one is Grammar 110, which will launch June 1st and run until the end of the month.
If you participated in Storytelling 101, whether it was one lesson or all of them, I’d appreciate it if you’d answer some questions in the comments, so I can better develop future Camp Write Owl courses for you.
1. Did you find any of the lessons in Storytelling 101 helpful? If not, why weren’t they helpful?
2. Did I explain topics well enough? (Sometimes I forget things I’ve known forever are new to other people and don’t explain them thoroughly, if at all.)
3. Which topic(s) would you like to see more in-depth discussions of in future camps?
4. What topic(s) would you like to see that wasn’t represented in Storytelling 101?
