I finished the Shonda Rhimes Masterclass! It was totally worth every minute and every dollar. Having the ability to hear directly from one of the best writers in television was an exceptional experience. Her lessons helped me in ways I didn’t expect. I really feel like I have a strong grasp on how to craft a story that is interesting and character driven, something I’ve always strived for but now I can achieve in new, better ways.
The class has assignments and if you do them you’ll end the course with a bible for an original pilot. Now. The day job got in the way a lot, so I’m a little behind on the bible, but I should have it completed soon. Once I do, I’ll post it on the site.
Now that I’m done with this Masterclass, I’ve been debating about doing Aaron Sorkin’s Masterclass. I can’t see how that class can be anything less than extremely educational.
If you’ve debated doing a Masterclass and you are looking to do writing for television, I can’t recommend Shonda Rhimes’ Masterclass enough. For $90, it’s totally worth it.
