MasterClass Online Classes
I am taking a MasterClass by one of my favorite authors... James Patterson Teaches Writing. I'm about 1/3 of the way thru the class and I'm still so excited about it. There are videos from him that make you feel like you're sitting across from him in a coffee shop, having a conversation where he's spilling his guts about the good, bad & ugly when it comes to writing fiction. He's real. He tells it like it is. He's inspiring. I'm so glad that I invested the $90 for this opportunity, both to get this view of one of my favorite authors, and for the knowledge I'm gaining for when I sit down to write my own book. I promised myself I would write a novel this year, before I turn 41 in Feb 2018.
I'm not sure if I'm going to outline and prep until NANOWRIMO in November, or if I'm going to start before then. We'll have to see how school pans out. Yesterday was the first day of the Esthetics block. I'm not sure if that's going to be a different pace and exhaustion level than the Nail Specialty block was. But at least I know that I definitely want to write a detailed outline before I write myself into a corner again like I did the last time.
