Well, I think I've shared all my secrets with you. It's over 40 years of writing for kids, and I think I've pretty much told you everything I know. I think you've gotten it all. And I what I tried to do for you is to break it down into little pieces, break it down into short lessons, short tricks, just short ideas, so that you would be able to get one after the other, and then put them all together. And I hope that's what I've achieved. I hope you've enjoyed this Masterclass, and I hope you've learned a lot from it. And I hope you feel that you're ready to write. I hope you remember a lot about what we said, about knowing your audience, and choosing your audience, and getting started, what we said about outlining, and mainly, what we talked about for getting ideas, finding ideas wherever we can, and the other big issue of avoiding writer's block. I hope you remember all that. And I hope that was really useful to you. And I do hope that you're encouraged, now that you've finished the course, to sit down and write, and try something, try some of the things we did. I've put exercises in your workbook. I put in all kinds of clues. I've given you 20 story ideas to try out. Try them. I hope you will sit down, write a story, write-- start a novel, see how you do. And mainly, just have fun with it. Enjoy it. Have a good time writing. [MAGICAL MUSIC]

Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, you’ll learn new ways to conquer writer’s block, develop plots, and build nail-biting suspense that will thrill young readers.
Every year I learn one new thing and this year is learning how to write. Figuring out the writing process and what worked best for me was a bit of a struggle. This class has given me clear, helpful tools and insight which is proving invaluable at every step of my project. Thank you Mr. Stine for being the spark I needed. It was a pleasure learning from you.
It was excellent. He's the guy that I truly admire and whose books I have mostly read. And he told me one thing that I realized I actually need to do: Outline. Lots of outlines. It's going to be interesting to say the least. Thanks for helping me make up my mind.
I learned to make outlines, write one small subject at a time, choose an audience and get inspired by beloved authors.
A brilliant class by R.L. Stine. Completely practical advice in such an impressive delivery style makes this course more than worth it.
