This course will appeal to you if you are a right brain creative. It provides the early basics for creatives and intentional writers. Based on the title of this course "Plan and Outline Any Project", I had expected a more structured course that would have more of a template format. Although this is not the case, I am familiar with a lot of what was discussed and recognize its value in creating the necessary habits for improving writing results. If you are looking to improve your ability to produce content more quickly and with less effort, overcome writers block and become a more prolific writer then this course lays the foundation for creating the necessary habits to begin the process. I would recommend this course as a good beginner course.
