I have put together Brandon Sanderson's most recent lecture series from this year. Last year's was great, this year's is better. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpFBqzMwbf1zZ-YoVL-yuex6-re-b8_gZ If you want to win fan fiction competitions, listen to these lectures. If you want to gain an audience for your work, listen to these lectures. If you want people to read past your first 3 sentences, listen to these lectures. Poets' Circle wants a healthy community of writers to exist and prosper. So why not go straight to a master of Fantasy dominating today's market? Sanderson certainly is amongst the greats! Wax Poetica, Ye Storytellers, Grandmaster Bard Holt Ironfell P.S. If you're planning to write for NaNoWriMo, get in touch! I'm going for 100k words in November, would love some company as crazy as I! I'll be posting a cheat sheet of writing tips soon.
