    1. I’m glad you like it. Literally, when I started out I thought this thing would be 15 minutes long. And as it got close to being an hour long I realized there’s a lot of things I can tell people about how to improve their writing just in one short story example. I could probably do two other 60 minute videos on that one story and talk about different aspects of why I put things where I did. I’m not sure how interesting it would be for99.9% of the people out there, but for the 1% or 1/10 of 1%, it might be a really good tool.

  1. I found this really helpful Dan. I loved the Indiana Jones reference and the twirling fingers, etc! And how you explained all the elements of the story and how you put them together.
