I think taking an online class is brilliant because you can access the class 24/7. I love the break down of the lecture, the notebook, the class discussion, and the booth. Most of all, this class got me writing for 10 weeks straight! With interactivity, you feel you want to write. You have a purpose and a goal so you prioritize it. And you feel like you're getting somewhere. I've taken Gotham's classes before and I will take them again—they're awesome.
