I’m a big fan of the Writing Excuses podcast. It’s definitely a must-listen for any beginner writer out there, and it was also an introduction to me for the writings of Brandon Sanderson. I’m in an odd position that I find myself a fan of Sanderson without actually reading any of his novels. I enjoyed his short story in the Armored anthology from JJ Adams, but I feel after listening to him expound on the craft and approaches of writing so much I cna’t help but feel respect for the man.
Anyway, I’m saying this because I had a series of YouTube videos brought to my attention. They’re a collection of classes Brandon gave to his college class on creative writing. There’s a fair few hour’s worth of material here for people to listen to, and I already have, and if there’s a way to download them I will for future reference.
