What our Students Say about This Course…
I found this week’s lesson interesting and brought up some things that I’d never considered before joining the course. I’ve found myself looking more deeply at best selling fiction as well as my own work, all thanks to your advice.
Certain spots in my novel have just not sounded right to me and finally I know why. Several sections in my novel use two or more topics in a single introspection. After editing them, they have a much tighter, focused appeal and flow smoother. Thanks so much!
Very Interesting and informative. Much harder than I expected yet I feel I got a lot out of Lesson one…thanks…
