I came across a series of Youtube videos a few days ago that I want to share here, as I think they are a pretty incredible resource for anyone interested in writing.
It’s a series of lectures given by Brandon Sanderson on creative writing and the publishing business in general. Brandon wrote the Mistborn series, among other things, and was also chosen to complete Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. He’s easily one of the biggest (if not the biggest) name in modern fantasy writing, so anything he says is going to be worth listening to.
It would be a pretty big treat to get to see a one hour workshop with someone as talented and high profile as him so for them to have put an entire academic year’s worth of lectures (I think there’s 2 years there now) online for anyone to watch is unbelievably generous.
If you write and want to improve, watch ’em!
