One thought on “Writing Your Skeleton Draft

  1. Kirsten S Oliphant

    I loved this course! As a pantser, I’m always looking at ways I can do better. Write better, be more efficient. But also not force myself to try a process that doesn’t work for me. This course gave me some fresh ideas and it was so amazing to get a look at the process behind Steff’s writing and how her books take shape. (I know Steff through groups but stealthily signed up for the course and really loved it and only told her once I finished.) Highly recommend for anyone who is a panster/gardener or even someone who plots, but wants to try a look at a different process.
