Found how to create a fable enlightening and useful; short, sweet, simple; more than worth its 15 minutes of fame. Video & audio out of sync in several lessons (spooked my story's animals), with video leading audio by several moral-neutral nanoseconds. Had started writing a fable a few weeks ago and now can edit it more wisely (title, "One Ass to Another"). Am starting a blog with a philosophical bend and fable structure will work well introducing it. Thanks, Mike.
Very clear instructions and full of helpful tips. Highly recommend the class; it was fun and enjoyable!
Short course but makes some good points. Very accessible and I like his fish fable.





Hi my name is Mike Van Drie. I love teaching others, over the past couple years I have taught thousands of people. I continue to teach both teenagers, college students and adults. I like taking complex ideas, making them simple and presenting them in a way that people will remember. I have been married to my wonderful wife Natalie for 8 1/2 years. I am a trivia nerd and love watching shows such as "The Chase". I am left-handed and even have a "left-handed" clock in my office, which confuses most people who see it.
