I am proud to announce that I have slaved over all of Jim Butcher's awesome writing notes. I've come to the conclusion that I would like to write mo' bettah. I believe going through his notes in an exercise format could really tune me up.
I will split these notes and exercises up over several different posts, to keep things more manageable. Plus, I want to do them all myself, too. I hope you'll get on board and do them with me! Let's practice writing and have some fun!
And here goes - I plan to do 1 post per bullet point. Or maybe a combo if they're pretty quick and easy.
