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]
Award-winning novelist R.L. Stine wrote jokes and funny stories for 20 years before he switched gears and became a horror-writing legend. Since then, the author of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series has sold more than 400 million copies. In his first-ever online writing class, Bob takes the fear out of crafting fiction. 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.
R. L. Stine's lectures are clear and concise. I bought the class because I want to have a better grasp on how to outline, and after listening to the process he uses (coupled with examples), I should be able to do it.
i loved learning from him, he was easy to listen to and his ideas made me think of my own writing.
I really learned a lot more about writing not only for kids, but writing scary stories and still being able to have fun with them. Bob was really informative when it came to how to create a mystery and going back through a story to weave in false leads and plant ideas. Lots of great information.
I love his practical advice when it comes to outlining and how he's able to write so many books.
