How to Write a Children’s Book (Course Overview)

I really didn’t set out to make a three and half hour course when I made this write-along style short story class. I knew it would take a few days to do, because writing a short story start to finish while living your life can take around a week to do.

After four days of working eight to 10 hours on the slides, the recordings, the screen sharing, the uploading, and blah, blah, blah, I was finished.

What You Should Know

1. The class is available on Udemy and Skillshare. If you already have a premium Skillshare account, you can just pop in and access it.

2. As I type this, my classes on Udemy are on sale for $12.99 each as part of a promotion that Udemy is running for the next 9 hours.

3. I do not cover structure or grammar, because structure is pretty intuitive, and basic grammar is all you need.

4. I would have named the class How to Write a Short Story in 7 Days or Less, but I was told it made a customer promise that the class may not fulfill. But the truth of the matter is that if you follow the steps in the class in order spending one day on each step, you’ll finish the short story in six or seven days.

I regret not naming the class this way, and will most likely be changing the title soon.

What’s Next

Well, I want to remake the children’s book writing class, because I left out the monkey see-monkey do aspect of it, and I wish I had left it in. I deleted the footage, because it was bad. Writer. Not film maker or YouTuber.

That being said, I really like how the short story class turned out. It is casual and realistic. I think if people who know me on a personal level take the class, they’ll say, “Yeah. This is basically us hanging out for a few hours.”

Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy.
