Don't you want to Write Great Fiction? Sure you do!

Got fiction?
Man oh man who wouldn't want to learn how to Writing Great Fiction from our The Great Courses coupon!

I love reading, and especially love fiction. Who doesn't?  So many great adventures I've been on by reading. Also I love non-fiction, but I do love a great novel most of all.

So if you're thinking of being a writer, why not learn a little bit about your craft beforehand?  Something like sharpening the saw before you begin cutting wood.

For everyone who has ever tried to construct a good story, there are pitfalls and frustrations you'd prefer to get over so you can get on with it, and this will help you do that faster.

If you want to write great fiction, let The Great Courses help!

Writing great fiction just got easier in June!

Got fiction?
It's weird to think that sometimes creative people don't consider training with something like Writing Great Fiction from our The Great Courses coupon!

Everything gets better with practice. We all know this. That's why if you've been driving for 20 years you're no longer as scared or timid as you were in the first 20 days.

So why wouldn't you take the time to hone your skills when writing fiction. Just because you're making the story up in your head doesn't mean that you don't need the mechanics of building a story to be spot on.

Do you have stories to tell? We can help you this month!

w00t!
Have I told you guys about my friend who says you spend your life perfecting your top ten stories? I think The Art of Storytelling would help with this, and we can help with our The Great Courses coupon!

So, my pal Michael says that you keep growing and learning and living for however long you keep curating your "Top 10 Stories" of your life.  Some drop out over time, some stay the whole length of your life. You keep culling and improving your stories.

And when you are done curating? That's when you start to die, according to Michael. Because storytelling is what keeps you lively and loving life.

And it's so easy to learn with this lecture series. Each lecture is also broken down into 30 minute pieces, and consumable in many formats: DVDs, audio, all kinds of things.

So get yourself some knowledge and start telling even better stories!

Want to learn How Great Science Fiction Works! Get it for FREE in April 2016!

Awesome course!
So many wonderful lectures at The Great Courses, including How Great Science Fiction Works. Try it out yourself with our The Great Courses coupon!

Doesn't matter what kind of science fiction you're into, if you like the genre, you know there are some really wonderful options, and a few less than wonderful ones as well. We all know it, and can tell when we get bamboozled by a bad one.

So you know what you like and what you don't like, and you can tell almost immediately when you get to watching. I'm just the same way — easy to know if it's sci fi that's "for me" or maybe not so much for me. But why? That's the real question. I know when I'm not digging it, but how do I know?

This course helps you figure it out.  Professor Gary K. Wolfe has the download, and can make sure you know what to look for when looking for great science fiction. I mean, I think Blade Runner is great science fiction, no matter what format we're talking about. But now I'm going to learn why. I can't wait. 

I'm not saying I always need wonderful science fiction that is sublime at every turn. But I wouldn't mind if it that were the case. Who would, really?
