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.

Extremely useful, well structured and with perfect examples. I expected something a bit different because of the name of the class but was not disappointed.
It's amazing thing!!!!
I've just finished listening to lesson 7, so far this course has been really helpful! The step-by-step breakdown of the writing process is very well done, and helps alleviate some of the overwhelm that can come when writing a story.
