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.

The course was informative on how to build, structure and develop the plot of our own stories. It was also very helpful in guiding us through the editing process. A useful course for aspiring writers.

The instructor has done a good job with the structure and assignments for this course. He explains the course and the assignments very well. I enjoyed the course.

I think the scene vs plot vs story could be clearer. Each module described a plot or a scene but the assignment asked us to write a story. A little confusing.

Thank you for giving me some concrete guidelines. I enjoyed following along without doing the assignments. Grateful to be able to be a part of the learning.

I do wish the instructor had gone into a little more detail about creating a full plot. Maybe offered some ideas on tools to help with development.

I found the lectures to be useful. However, the assignments were not always clearly communicated, and the peer feedback was inconsistent at times.

The course is a good introduction to creative writing. I found it useful and well strucutred, but I have to say to me it was a little too short.

Excellent course. I would have liked to have an assignment to write a longer story using all the course lessons. A full story with each scene.

Un curso muy completo y enfocado a principiantes. Se recomienda usar grupos de whatsapp con los estudiantes que puedas para compartir tareas

Good course. Got chance to read some interesting stories while reviewing peers. Discovered what I was doing wrong while writing stories.

It was a good learning method and I appreciate the lessons and the invited speakers that share so greatly from their experience.

This is giving me a methodology and moved me more towards enriching my characters and showing the story as opposed to telling it

The course instruction helped me develop my story more clearly. I do wish that there was some review other than just by peers.

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.

I would have preferred to also get feedback from the course instructor. The peer reviews were sometimes wanting.

Brando was excellent in specifying the methodological way of writing stories. Thanks for the 21 point checklist!

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

Very interesting and enjoyable. Perhaps a little shorter than I expected, although I only audited the course.

This is a really good course! It only took me a few days and now I can write great scenes with good detail!
