I can't say enough about how useful and awesome Angela Knight is as a best-selling author instructing other writers. This webinar was quite useful. I'm revising my NaNoWriMo novel at this time and I felt like she was speaking to me, as a gerbil stuck in an exercise wheel...rewriting/revising. She is very in your face realistic, organized and practical. Everyone can gain from her classes and webinars.
Get Ready for NaNoWriMo with Angela Knight is one of the best workshops I have ever taken. Clear, concise and to the point practical advise to use when outlining a novel. Her lecture was easy to follow and all notes were provided in a PDF, so during the workshop you could just enjoy the presentation without worrying you've missed something.
Excellent printable story grid was provided for use when outining a novel and best of all an example to follow. Angela had everything I would ever need or expect from a presenter in one sweet package. Her knowlege, volume of work, and years of experience are evident and I am honored to have been able to learn from her.
Angela Knight shares her techniques and I have tried several of them. Taking walks while brainstorming my book worked for me in the past. I tried it again and am thankful she reminded me of a method I had forgotten about. I liked the video format of this course, which is a change for me, rather than reading files. She is a great teacher and explains her worksheets well, referring to her recently completed novel, Arcane Deception. I also like that she continues to share any toolbox of resources to get back into writing her next book, long after the course is done. Thank you!
This comprehensive workshop in which Angela shows her entire system for creating a book was done with video, text, and charts. The way in which she presents in all those formats helped me to understand and retain the massive amount of material presented. From brainstorming the initial idea, constructing each section of the first draft, rewrites, editing, creating a cover, and more is covered (and not just in passing). The walking/recording while brainstorming was a revelation to me. Seriously the best investment I've ever made in a workshop--both in terms of money and time. Too bad the rating is capped at five stars. I'd give this one ten.
I am so glad I took Angela's class. It's the first workshop that has ever taken me through the entire process of writing a book. Taking a video "walK" with Angela as she brainstorms her book showed me that other writers think as I do. The combination of video lessons and print lessons kept the flow of information varied and interesting. There was such pertinent, applicable information in the videos, so having them available for several months is a huge plus. If you want to take a workshop that gives you the whole picture of writing a book, from the idea stage to the last chapter, look no further. Blueprint to Success is worth your time and money.
Seeing Angela Knight fix things in her doc. was an eye-opener for me. Having visual breaks from the written word by using her art was... I have no words. As an artist it was epic to see in a writing class. It helped me stay focused while feeding my love of visual art with my love writing. This class fed my soul and filled my well. I needed it. Her teaching style is entertaining while she she teaches. I found myself laughing out loud in the best ways at certain times. That's the caution I can give, you might laught too loud. You get the visual, the audio, the docs. Don't hesitate. This was awesome!
I loved this workshop! I learned various things along the way to make my characters stronger ad my plotting tighter. Over the years, I've taken workshops Angela has given and she never, ever, disappoints. Her teaching is to the point and passionate, easy to understand. I highly recommend this workshop and any others by Angela Knight.
This has been the best fifty bucks I have ever spent! Angela provides a combination of both video and written content, including grids, graphs and sample outlines. Everything needed to write a novel from start to finish. On top of that, critiques are offered and a discussion forum that is detailed and informative. If you haven't taken this class yet, then you're missing out!
I already knew Angela Knight was an amazing instructor from previous classes/webinars I've taken. Although I assumed I already knew the foundation of novel building, seeing the instructor's name, I knew I would benefit to learn her process. The new multimedia format of the course was like having Angela in your home or beside you, as a walking buddy. The videos and word/pdf lesson attachments illustrated the lessons so well. The experience was incredible. The author walks the class through her process to create the novel she discusses in the course as an example for the students. Her input on homework and critiques is invaluable. She is kind and available/accessible to answer student questions. I cannot praise this class or the instructor enough. No, I'm not a relative of Her's either. I applaud her thoroughness and openness to want to help aspiring authors.
I loved that Angela gave us real world examples of how to braid conflict into our stories using her own novel. I also appreciated her taking the time to offer us feedback on our own work we submitted to her. She even included some handouts and extra lessons in with her own lessons. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone, even if they are a romance novelist.
This is my second class with Angela. Her lessons are so detailed, informative, and aligned with my writing process. And the fact that she offers critiques to every class member is above and beyond valuable. I will definitely be signing up for more classes with her!
When I started this class, I couldn’t figure out how to end my book. Angela’s lessons sparked my enthusiasm, and her critiques inspired me to plot a satisfying conclusion. I liked that she praised some of my work while critiquing and editing. Her input made me want to work harder. I hope to take more of her classes in the future.
This is my third class with Angela and each one was better than the last. She's a generous and responsive instructor who provides detailed lessons. The critiques that she provides alone are well worth the price of the class. Thanks to Angela for all the help and support.
I’ve previously taken two of Angela’s courses, “Polish Your Pitch” and “Hearts and Handcuffs.” Her suggestions for my pitch resulted in an offer for publication. She is an outstanding teacher who provides detailed instruction and excellent critiques. I am grateful for her personal interest in my work and the time she has spent with me. I’m ready to turn in my final manuscript to my publisher after this class. Thank you, Angela, for everything!
Angela's course gave me what she promised. Easy-to-understand lessons. Pertinent and in-depth examples. Encouragement. Thoughtful, perceptive, and positive critiques. I loved her class and her sense of humor. Angela Knight is an instructor I will definitely follow.
Angela Knight is an outstanding instructor. Taking a class from her is like having a coach who walks alongside you. I feel fortunate to have taken two of her classes. She's detailed in her instruction, and best of all incredibly generous in her willingness and responsiveness in critiquing multiple scenes from her students.
For a class that was in the online forum format, I thought it was done well. I think it had the right amount of structure, and had assignments spaced out in a way I appreciated. Angela was great in terms of help and feedback. Also, she responds and posts like a real person, was familiar but direct, which I think makes it easier to not only learn from but also take criticism. Would recommend and plan on taking again for a different WIP.
