Thriller Writing Class Alumni Class

Great class. I have been grasping in the dark trying to get a handle on the thriller genre for almost 2 years now. This class saved me hours of headache.

This is an excellent way to build a story

I liked this class. I think like Delia it is my favorite and I intend to use the strategy to build my stories from now on with these steps in mind. My only regret is I think I didn't know how to engage with other students. I asked for exchanges and got no replies. I think I didn't know how to use the site.

spells it out

I was doing 94% of this stuff already but in a more time-intensive path of crafting things over and over. This gave a framework to more quickly and clearly do what I was doing by a roundabout path on my own.

the villain's plan

I liked being reminded of all the elements to consider when building an engaging story line with high stakes and a complicated and powerful opponent to the protagonist.

Very well designed and directed course

This class ranks with the best I've ever taken online, with Hal or elsewhere. It's well conceived, clearly designed and led, and very productive when utilized in writing. My only regret is that, for busy people, it would have been helpful to have one more day between lessons. But if you're a thriller writer, by all means take it!

Hal makes everything simple!

If you just go step by step and do the assignments, you will find that it is actually not nearly as difficult to write a great thriller as you thought. The real trick is the rewriting and polishing
