The Guide on [White's Course]
This is the mantra of the White's Course series that I dedicate to the aspiring writer as I share my various insights into the writing world.
White's Course is something that serves to answer the questions, and share insight on a variety of topics throughout the writing community. Every piece is constructed based on a topic as the topic is explored, no heavy scripting nor layering of bullet points and the sort.
White's Course is meant to be read as if someone were speaking directly with myself as I discuss the topic at hand. I don't give lectures on subjects, I just discuss varying concepts that deserve some exploration. Having another person's direct thoughts and breakthroughs on a subject available to one's self is often a desirable resource. I state this in every introduction to a Course, not everyone will specifically be suited to a Course's directed message, it's the way I, as White, specifically view the subject. That, and perspectives that I can comprehend at the time of writing.
If I had managed to discover an all-pervasive concept that unlocks the potential of every human being as a writer, i'd have written it, gotten a copyright, and sold it. Certainly not shared it for free on a forum! Jokes aside, welcome to the Nexus of "White's Course on-"!
Now then, allow me to guide you through the ever expanding world of "White's Course on-"

There are many times when a writer, be it their first work, or their tenth, struggles to find their own original concept. In my Course on Originality, I pursue some concepts that delve into the concept in the hopes of inspiring writers, new and old, into looking deep into themselves to raise the question: "What makes me Original?"
When it comes to writing, there is never a time when a writer can be more nervous than their first. It is as if delving into an entire new world, and the stress when one posts their first Prologue and or Chapter can be intense. In my Course on Your First Work, I seek to inspire the young writer into taking that first step and believing in themselves. Because, in the end, it's not "If I can do it", it's "I CAN do it!"
Oh yes, the ever existing question for writers young and old.... How to get more popular to satisfy that demon in all of us that longs for just a few more views to reach 100, then a few views for a 1000. Refreshing the page over and over again after posting a chapter, and reading each comment. While White's Course on Gaining Views may have some semi-outdated information at times in terms of exact numbers, the habits and concepts developed in this Course are never something to forget for any reader. Remember, whether a writer admits it or not, we all love "Gaining Views!"

"White's Course on-" was originally a 3-part guide chain released in late 2015 in an effort to share base concepts with readers and writers in light of an unorganized Guide section experience. After gaining a combined number of over 23,000 views, White- me of course- decided to continue the series due to it's popularity and because of how it affected dozens of prospective writers over the years. Encouraged by dozens of happy comments and PMs over several media, "White's Course on-" became a weekly series late April of 2018, releasing every Sunday.
