Standard FAQ #
If I have limited funds, which is a better choice to make: Brave Writer 101: Guided Writing Process (the online class) or The Writer's Jungle (digital)?
Brave Writer 101: Guided Writing Process is better at giving the support and accountability that help many moms get over the hurdle of teaching writing. If you find that you want to make time to teach writing, but never get around to it, a class will ensure that you keep that commitment to yourself and your kids. It's the "hand-holding" approach to becoming your child's best writing coach. I always recommend a class, as a first choice, if you have to pick one.
The Writer's Jungle, however, offers the possibility of going at your own pace. It gives you a wealth of material not found in an online class, and it is a constant resource you can turn to again and again since you will own it. If you feel you need to soak in the Brave Writer philosophy, like the idea of testing the waters for yourself, enjoy going at your own unhurried pace, or want to reinforce what you've already learned in a class, the The Writer's Jungle is the ticket!
Where do I start? There's so much information to absorb!
A corner stone to the Brave Writer philosophy is to do "one thing" at a time. Don't overwhelm yourself by trying to figure out how many good things you can do. Instead, pick the "one thing" that is most tempting, most captivating, most interesting to you. Then sign up, order, read, apply whatever that "one thing" is until you are certain you have milked it for all its worth. Then once you have successfully used a month's worth of Arrow material (language arts) or have successfully executed a Poetry Teatime (Brave Writer Lifestyle) or have worked through the Expository Essay: SAT/ACT Format class, you'll be ready to add "one more thing" to your life. Remember: depth over breadth, enjoyment over struggle, commitment over clutter.
