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.
Inspiring words that are for more than just writing. Humble and likeable, a great teacher. I highly recommend this masterclass.
I subscribed to MasterClass mostly because of R.L. Stine, and now I see I made an excellent decision. Truly amazing!
R.L. Stine was great. Strong content shared.
It was a good course. Things were explained well and kept simple, but there were some jewels in this lesson. It was easy to follow and understand. There was some drag in some parts, but overall it was good, and worth the time.
