A lot of good information to unpack and chew on. Probably will take me a while and then I won't be able to ask questions.
I do agree with another student that it would have been helpful if we knew ahead of time to have loglines ready to post. With all the issues just getting into the class (Saturday lockout), I never got to post. :-(
In the future, I think it would be very helpful to advise the people taking this class to have a working logline prepared. To get the most out of the class- having one and the time to work on further developing it is key. It is advertised as a short/intensive class and if it falls during a busy time in your life-- you might not be able to participate and will miss out on personalized help from Ms. Drake.
Perhaps a course description that is more in-depth regarding what tools you need (logline) and the time involved- you need free time to follow the class on those assigned days.
This information was very useful so between it and other classes I hope to get an agent for the book I've started. I self publish now and am hoping for traditional with another series that I pitched to an editor and was accepted.
