Have already read/heard a lot on the subject, but this still had new pointers. Thumbs up!
I'm loving this Class!! Rebecca's advice has come in really handy while I work on my own story on Wattpad, Dwarf Rising! I did some plotting before I started but after watching "Writing and Plotting" i realized that I am a Plotter and need to go back and further flesh out my plot and characters, as well as the world!
Rebecca does a great job of communicating her passion as well as useful information. I enjoy her personality so much, I will take a look at some of her books. This is a great class!
