Reminder About Upcoming Flash Fiction and Idea to Draft Online Writing Classes

If you're looking for an interesting online writing class to keep productive during December, I've got both a flash fiction and a "Moving Your Story from Idea to Draft" workshop coming up on the 20th and 21st.

Time is fleeting, and December is rolling along. Here at the writing retreat I’m on this week, I’ve finished one story and a couple of flash pieces and am well on the way to finishing up “Carpe Glitter”. I hope to finish at least three of the half-finished pieces I brought with me.

On the 20th and 21st of December, I’m teaching two online writing classes focusing on speculative fiction. If you haven’t taken a class with me before, they’re done online via Goggle Hangouts, they’re a lot of fun, and you will emerge with some flash from the flash workshop and a well-fleshed out idea and some techniques for fleshing ideas out in the future from the Idea to Draft class.

Here’s the descriptions:
