February 6 Question Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have? 

I love writing speculative fiction and blogs. That can be said about most if not all of us. 

But I also write online courses. I have for almost 20 years. I remember my manager at the time encouraging me to take online courses. This was back in dial-up modem days. 

I flipped through the catalog and knew I could teach many of these classes. I took a yellow marker and highlighted every course that was NOT offered online (some were physical classroom, some online and some both). Then I took a black pen and crossed out every class I could not or did not want to teach (like under water basket weaving). 

What was left were physical classroom courses I could teach and pitched the school. They took a chance and rolled the dice with me and that was the start of me becoming an online instructor. 

I branched out on with my personal online courses with mixed results. I’ve recently brought these into the 21st century and transitioned from written content to videos. I’m currently in the editing stage. I’m super doper excited to have my beta people review selected segments and give me their feedback, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. 

Question Does your writing expand beyond novels and blogs? If so, what are they? Thanks in advance for sharing.
