Make your own Summer Writing Boot Camp!

Out of school for the summer? Have some free time?

No you don’t! You should be writing. And with all that not-really-free-time, you should target what strengths and weaknesses you have as a writer and try to improve on those strengths.

Google is going to be your best friend through your self-imposed Summer Writing Boot Camp!

Have issues with believable dialog?

3,840,000 is all? Dang Internet, I thought you were limitless. I'm disappointed now.

Google isn’t the answer to everything, though, or…is it?

Wait, what? Hey Google, I was complimenting you, don't get nasty now.

Yes, I suppose improper grammar usage can be worked on via the wonders of the internet as well.

Oi! I'm not THAT wordy, am I?
Oi! I’m not THAT wordy, am I?

Getting back to the point, whatever issues you may have that need improving, a quick Google search will offer gaggles of solutions for you.

And after that, it’s just practice, practice, and more practice.

Don’t believe me? Ask Google.

Never doubt the all-knowing Google.
Never doubt the all-knowing Google.

So throw away your free time and commit yourself to Google searches and hosting your own summer writing workshops to get your writing into shape!
