Taking MasterClass with Neil Gaiman!

Today Neil Gaiman’s MasterClass opened up. MasterClass is an online forum where masters like Neil Gaiman, Malcom Gladwell and Dr. Jane Goodall share their knowledge in videos and assignments. I joined MasterClass a few months ago when I found out Gaiman would be teaching one.

I’m only a few lessons in, and it has proved worth it. Listening to Gaiman discuss truth in fiction and honesty as a writer is like getting a double espresso directly injected into the daydream center in my brain. My muse just resigned, unable to compete with Gaiman’s insight and wisdom. With Neil on my side, I don’t think I’ll miss her.

There are a ton of instructors on MasterClass, definitely worth checking out. James Patterson, Usher, Annie Leibovitz, Serena Williams, Christina Aguilera, Hans Zimmer, Gordon Ramsay… all these and more are teaching on MasterClass.

Right now they are having a drive, where if you get an All-Access Pass with this link you get a free month (and I’ll get three). Here’s the link: https://share.masterclass.com/x/9tQphs

Honestly though, getting to take Gaiman’s class is enough for me. I’ll probably take it at least twice more. The first time to just bask and absorb, the second time I’ll take notes and the third time I’ll see what I missed.
