The ExpertRating Online Writing Course (Descriptive Writing)
(leading to ExpertRating Writing Certification-Descriptive Writing).

You may live among the prickly pears, dust devils, and intense sun of the desert. Or you may reside in a small town nestled alongside cornfields. Or perhaps you live in the big city and take a train in to work every day.

No matter where you live, your surroundings have special physical, historical, and spiritual characteristics that you can--and should--rely on to breathe life into any work of fiction or nonfiction.

During this course, you'll learn to tap into the world you know in order to establish a realistic sense of place in your writing. You'll develop your eye for detail, and you'll find out how to collect the information you'll need to infuse your works with believable characters, memorable settings, and detailed descriptions.

This hands-on course is filled with a variety of valuable exercises that will help you hone your skills of observation, interviewing, collecting oral histories, remembering details and descriptions, reproducing dialogue and diction, using figurative language, developing realistic characters, and more.
 

By the time you finish this course, you'll be well-prepared to create truly unique works filled with vivid and meaningful observations of the people, places, foods, customs, and events in not only your local community, but also in places that exist only in your memory.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 672000 writers, authors, editors and technical writers are required by the year 2016.

Most writers don't have a problem finding the setting for their story. Setting is simply the time, place and circumstance of your story. If your main character is a hardened New York City cop and the plot centers on a murder investigation, your setting is likely the gritty New York City streets during the day and night. This could take place fifty or more years ago or even in the current day.


 

If you flesh out your character well, you likely would not have a problem finding the right setting, but make sure the setting is true to the plot and characters. Do research if necessary. If you want to write a story that's set in the 16th Century, but you have little knowledge of the time, do research, so your dialogue, your setting and your characterizations are spot on. The ExpertRating  Writer’s Guide to Descriptive Settings Certification Course will teach you the nuances of creating a great setting. Who knows you are the next J.K. Rowling in the making.
