If you love creative writing you will love this “Easy Ways to Add Humour to Your Stories!” online writing course!
If you are a Christian, and write novels for children/teens, you will love this step-by-step online course to go through at your own pace, wherever you are in the world (even if you call it humor!).
By the end of the course you will be buzzing with exciting ways to breathe new life into your novel.
If you are writing to share the good news of Jesus in some way, your novel will already be extra special, because it has eternal value, but…
the better written it is, the more children will read and enjoy it!
Our children are worth a bit of extra effort, aren’t they? In the parable of the talents, the servants who received the gifts had to put them to work… the servant who buried his talent was in trouble – don’t let that be you!
Most writers struggle on alone hoping their writing is good enough, but, as with any field of life, a little bit of help can work wonders. This course can help you take your novel to the next level, with a few simple, proven tweaks.
This course is for you if you:
- Are new to writing novels for children/teens…
- Or want to make a start.
- Love creative writing.
- Have a message to share.
- Want to learn some new ideas to add humour to your stories.
If you have been called to write, someone is waiting for your story. This is an awesome responsibility. Write for a Reason courses exist to help you, but whether you decide this course is right for you or not, please let me encourage you: don’t bury your talent. Our children need the light, life, encouragement and hope that Christian books can bring.
