A writerly friend gifted me a year’s subscription to MasterClass and it has been AWESOME! I watch a lesson or two or ten each day as I’m getting ready for the day or cooking or some other mindless task.
I’m making my through many of the writing classes led by Neil Gaiman, David Baldacci, Dan Brown, Margaret Atwood, and many others. I’ve gained some insights into my own writing process or ways to bolster my current writing project.
Occasionally, I’ll watch a non-writing course. Anna Wintour’s discussion of her role at Vogue and Conde Nast publishing was interesting. Bobbi Brown changed the way I apply makeup. Spike Lee talks about his writing process.
Next I’ll explore some of the cooking lessons. Who doesn’t want to learn knife skills from Gordon Ramsey?
