Very informative, with really useful advice.
Will definitely re-read the lessons, and review the comments when working on my thriller :)
I enjoyed this class a lot. Steve's lectures were very helpful in plotting out a thriller and I will be referring to his notes when I plan my next book in this genre. Thank you!
Fantastic class! Steve's homework had me discover issues of the story I was unaware of. His questions had me thinking of the antagonist and expanding their background from a simple cardboard type to a complex villain with motives.
Thank you Very much, Steve.
