It is a very thorough course. If you do your homework as you go with the lessons, by the time you finish this course you would become a writer. But if you don't do your homework, then you won't become a writer but only know about different parts of writing without any practical use of them. The instructor did a great job. we will have to do our part.

This course was very, very, very useful. The delivery is engaging and the points are short and clear. I recommend writers to take this course.

Well structured contents and lesson plan. It's worth the every penny I paid for. What I've really learnt is that in order to be an eloquent writer, I have to write every single day, without a doubt. Learning new prompt word or sentences and from there, writing and writing, till my mind produce word and sentences like liquid. I took pretty long to complete this course as I was doing this course on my free time but it really open my eyes to new things like new genre that I've never written of or thought of it before. Especially the "Drama" genre. It gives me a potential idea of my ability to write a dialogue well with my crazy imaginary mind!

I am finding the course very informative and exciting. A little fast at times, but I can always go back and recap. I enjoy the 10 minute writing exercises to write a flowing story without becoming too bogged down in worrying about making mistakes etc. etc.
