Take a writing class with James Patterson

I've been wrapped up in an online Psychology class for the past five weeks, which is why blogging has been non-existent. It seems like every time I make the decision to blog regularly, something comes up. It's a great class and the topic is really interesting, but not something you should be trying to cover in a six-week period. In the past week we had to cover two chapters plus a portion of a third, and one of the chapters alone was almost 50 pages. The good news is that it's almost done and now I can concentrate on things I've been neglecting, like blogging, writing and cooking. And I just found a great way to get back on the writing horse.

Via MasterClass on Facebook: James Patterson Teaches Writing. Patterson is the prolific author of 19 consecutive Number One New York Times Best Sellers. The 22-part course is online so you can do it from anywhere and at your own pace. The best part: It's only $90. One more week of psychology and I'm signing up.

This will be the first time I've taken a course through MasterClass, but they've got a lot of interesting looking ones including Serena Williams teaching tennis, Dustin Hoffman teaching acting, and Annie Leibovitz teaching photography. All for less than $100. Anyone have any experience with their classes?
