Whenever people ask me for creative writing advice, the best (and shortest) answer I can give is “watch Brandon Sanderson’s lectures on YouTube.” Why? Because if you plan to be a better writer (don’t we all?), then I highly suggest you watch every video of Mr. Sanderson’s lectures.
It’s like… taking a college class in your own home for FREE. No sign-ups. No contracts. No payments. No email address needed. Nothing. I don’t know about you, but if I can save money and educate myself, I’m all in.
I don’t get paid to “advertise” these videos. I have no affiliation with Brandon Sanderson whatsoever. I don’t even know the fella in real life. It wasn’t until a fellow writer suggested his lectures to me that I realized it was going to change my entire writing career.
After watching just ONE lecture, I felt more educated and empowered than I ever have about my writing skills. He doesn’t just touch base on one subject, but rather MANY different subjects in regards to creative writing.
- World building
- Dialogue and agents
- Magic systems
- And more!
OVER 12 HOURS OF EDUCATION
The above image is literally how I felt while writing after applying the knowledge I learned from watching these YouTube videos.
Here’s a link that will direct you to all of his videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ_Yq-hCQ9kmCiNdDeIrbgA/videos
Keep in mind that some content may change in between the time that I post this blog and you read this blog. But, one thing will always remain the same. Brandon Sanderson’s lectures will change the way you approach writing. For the better.
