some of that book learnin’

I’m going to be taking an online writing course offered by Michael Knost. Knost edited the recent Writers Workshop Of Horror collection. You can find out more about the class and Michael at his blog here. There is apparently still a bit of room in the classes if anyone might be interested.

I’m still working my way through the Writers Workshop book, but the articles thus far have all been useful and well done. The collection is a similar approach to the Horror Writer’s Association’s (HWA’s) book On Writing Horror. A compilation of essays by various luminaries of the field dissecting a particular component of the craft.  I got a lot out of On Writing Horror, but the Knost collection thus far feels even more meat and potatoes than that did.

I’m definitely looking forward to it, I haven’t taken a formal course in a very long time. I guess I took a class on Adobe Illustrator that my work paid for about 12 years ago, but before that it was college about 18 years ago.
