    Loved doing Lynn’s mini online webinar (with Beth) on various character arcs. The great thing is you get to retain access to those. Online learning is so fabulous for people like me who live in rural Australia, miles from other keen writers.

  2. We’re so glad you’re enjoying the course, Jay! I’m in a relatively rural area too, and most of my education has come from books and online courses. 🙂
