A writing journey: the story of the origins of the "original" Creative Writing Course (online) from1997/1998.
Also including the actual lessons (just it first appeared on the www in 1997/8, which you can do in your own time to practically improve your writing skills.

"You know when a writers in real trouble... when they start writing about writing."
And once they start running creative writing courses, you know then they're really deep in the smelly brown stuff."


Doesn't sound very exciting (or promising for me) that... does it!


"Everyone has some talent. What's rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads."
Erica Jong , author of Fear of Flying

About the Author


About twenty-five years ago, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ....and with nothing else to do, Craig started writing.
About 150 books later, this "techno-dummy/bunny" started learning more about the publishing process from his "technoggeek" friend, Bill. He loves sharing "info" on the writing and publishing journey (as well as life experiences) with others "out there"....and that is his motivation in publishing this book.

"We share what we know, so that we all may grow."
"I really value words and the power of them to communicate effectively; so in my various stories try to illustrate and then let readers draw their own conclusions about a certain scenario, as well as the characters searching for their own values in an increasingly complex social and political landscape. However, I do feel an obligation to give a complete picture of the situation, which is often not a clear-cut 'black or white' issue (as in South Africa). I never want to proscribe how people should think and feel my only duty as a writer is to be totally honest."

"Life is about finding, then following the dream and one's dream/vision comes to reality through believing in yourself,
making the commitment and then creating it."

All our dreams can come true...if we have the desire (burning), courage, passion, persistence and patience* to pursue them...long enough."

* the "three pees"



"Together, one mind, one life at a time, let's see how many people we can impact, encourage, empower, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials."
