Great Class and It's Free!

If you're like me you’ve probably already started your New Years resolutions. If you're not crazy like me and don't do those things for fun, maybe your waiting until after Christmas. Or if you just love writing have I got something for you! If you're not, well, come back later. About two years ago I came across writing lectures by author Brandon Sanderson and ever since I’ve been hooked. All of us newbie writers have listened with rapt devotion to industry professionals giving the inside scoop. Some of them are great, some  are less so. Sanderson is one of those rare birds who is as good a teacher as he is an author. Every year he teaches a class at BYU about the practical application of genre writing. Since most of us don’t have the time or ability to actually go this class (I live 2000 miles away, a little far for a weekly jaunt) he’s started filming them and posting them for free on Youtube. I’ve learned so much from Sanderson’s lecture series and I’ve noticed a marked improvement in my WIPs. So if this sounds like something you'd be interested in I'm the first to tell you to give it a try.

Disclaimer: I have in no way been paid to do this. My husband hasn't been kidnapped by an evil Sanderson, really!
