Meet your new instructor, R.L. Stine (you can call him Bob). The legendary kids’ horror author outlines his intentions for the class and encourages you to forget the idea that writing is difficult.
Topics include: Introduction
Anyone can be a good writer, I think. People are natural storytellers. Everyone wants to know what happens next. [MUSIC PLAYING] I have this one bit of advice, which I really believe. It's really worked for me, and I think it's very important for writers. You don't have to be afraid of writing. It's not scary. Don't listen to all these people who talk about how hard writing is. It's not hard. You don't want to make it seem like it's something that's complicated, something that you have to work at, something that has to come from deep inside you. It doesn't. You can just write for fun. Why do you have to write from your heart? You know, the truth is, I've written maybe 330 books, and I haven't written a single one from my heart, not one. I'm RL Stein, and this is my MasterClass.
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.
I learned a lot about knowing your market and tailoring your books to certain audiences!
He was the best so far for writing. The rest are good with content and did a great job presenting, but Mr. Stine's personality make the class so I can't wait to get to the next chapter. I want more for writing, others I have not taken and I will
RL Stine is very clear and straightforward in his advice and his track record, to put it mildly, is practically without equal. This is a tremendously valuable class.
I feel so fortunate to have been able to take this master class! I will take what R.L. Stine taught and use it towards writing. I love everything he shared the personal stories, advice, writing tips and will remember them and just have fun writing and will in turn try to create something fun and entertaining!
