Joining a writing class might not seem so important because all that is going through your mind is, “What am I going to do at the class?” However, since we know from experience with our trainees what a writing class can do to your skill, we have decided to share just four of the amazing reasons why you may need to join a writing class soon.
Consistency and Control
A writing class helps you to be consistent especially with your writing goals. So many writers have lofty writing goals but they never materialize because there’s no one to ensure consistency. If you are that kind of writer, joining a writing class will keep you on your toes, become more consistent and ultimately help you write better.
Getting the undiluted truth
Everyone needs someone who can give them the undiluted truth about their writing, especially if they want to grow in that craft. A writing class can give you just that. It’s not every time your writing will be fantastic and you need someone to tell you the truth. Unlike open writing groups, smaller writing classes help to keep you more accountable. You won’t get lost in the crowd.
Writing classes are very personal. They focus on your area of specialization and help you grow in that niche. Your errors are corrected and overtime you will see how much your writing has improved.
Enough boost to get you through rough days
There are days when you don’t feel good enough to write or maybe your writing isn’t just adding up and if you don’t handle things well it may take you days or weeks to be able to write something good again. Your writing coach however has good enough experience regarding how to help you through those days. Sometimes all you need is someone to say, “I believe in you” and your day is already made.
We know a writing class can give you all these and more!
