What's nextIf you have worked your way through all of the lessons you should now have a very respectable first draft of a story. I also hope that by completing this course you have the confidence to continue writing and developing your craft. Learning to write well does require practice and determination but if you have discovered (or reignited) a desire to write, don’t stop now.

Although this course has focussed on your first draft and first revision you may find that you need more drafts and revisions before you feel your story is ready to be shared but don’t let that put you off. Most professional writers produce many drafts before they are completely happy.

If you have found this course useful please let us know through our contact page. We would also be delighted if you would consider recommending this course to your friends..

If you would like some one-to-one help or advice then please get in contact or visit our Writing and editing services page for full details of what we can do help you.
