Great course to take as the first step in the sequence of the "Creative Writing" certification. Exercises are fun, professor provides useful methodology, load is manageable for someone with a day job.

It seems easy at the start; give it a week or two and you will be very surprised -- with yourself and your reaction to the feedback.\n\nThe instructions are easy to follow, the insights are priceless.

I only wish that the videos would be longer, have a better production quality, I'd like to see not only slides but also videos, etc.

Clear and concise. Instructional. The only thing that I hope is to get more examples from the course except explanations.

I liked the ABDCE formula. It directed my thoughts and ultimately enabled my story to take a more satisfying direction.

The content is interesting, but not rich enough for a course. I finished all the videos and assignments in only 2 days.

Short, pithy descriptions; to the point advice/ suggestions with leeway to alter the structure. Worth the time.
