Hi, I'm Morgan Lindsay Nelson and I'm thrilled to be teaching this class here at Skillshare!

Here's a bit about myself so you know me better:

  • I am a writer and visual artist. 
  • Writing has been a constant love of mine throughout my life. 
  • I've written screenplays for the past ten years, lifestyle articles for digital startups and pen short stories.
  • I am a total nerd for all things creative.
  • I work with aspiring writers to guide them through the (sometimes-overwhelming) world of writing and energize their creativity so it all feels fresh and fun.

It is really helpful in constructing my story and it reminds me the plot holes that i need to fill in to make my story better.
This class gave a good insight on how we can create our own Epic;not spilling too much information but precisely adequate one.The steps discussed makes it look so easy. It is well structured,easy to grasp,definitely a great class for budding writers. Just Loved it!!
Nice basic course with some handy pointers to start writing a fantasy story, especially suitable for beginners.
