I really enjoyed this class! Very informative and laid out in a very concise and easily absorbed manner.
This was an excellent class, as was LC Hayden's previous ones. Her notes are informative, systematic and organized, allowing one to comprehend the genre and rules to create such a story/novel. Her methods build a strong fountain to create an amazing story, with no flaws or missing components. I highly recommend this class and the instructors other classes. Thank you so much!
I thought this class was very informative. It broke down each step into easy to understand steps which help the student to feel less overwhelmed by all of the information. It can now be seen in smaller, easier to accomplish steps.
