Emily gets you to write. Like a lot of writing courses, the initial goal is not to write something amazing or ready for publication. This course gets you writing like you might walk. You are not likely to be an athletic or professional walker. Write. That is what Emily gets you to do. Do it! Write.
Great class, been thinking about starting writing to spill out all the mumbo-jumbo in my head, and this class should serve as a great launchpad. Thumbs up to Emily as well, you have a very tranquil yet energetic presence about you that made the videos a joy to watch.
Good info and helpful ideas on getting creative juices flowing. Thank you Emily.
