We're drawn to the unknown

So, let’s get started. The first thing I’d like you to do is to go out and buy a notebook/journal.

What do you write in this notebook/journal?

  • Ideas for stories.
  • Overheard conversations.
  • Observations from real life.
  • Beginnings of stories.
  • Descriptions of locations.
  • Things you hear on the radio of TV.

It will also be a place to keep all your responses to the exercises set in this course.

Some of you will be regular writers, while some of you won’t have written for a while. That’s fine. Whatever point you are at, this short, free course is your chance to get into the habit of writing regularly. It will give you a structure, as well as exercises, to help you move your writing forwards. I hope you enjoy the course as we dive into creating your science fiction world.

"In science fiction, we're always searching for new frontiers. We're drawn to the unknown." -      Ridley Scott
