A couple weeks ago, I compiled a list of 10 resources for building a medieval fantasy world. I’ve also been watching a bunch of YouTube videos on the craft of writing, and this week I’d like to share those with you.
- DC Ferguson: dozens of very good videos on all aspects of craft. If you don’t click on any other links, make sure you click on this one and then watch everything!!
- Hello Future Me: focuses on fantasy but has lots of videos on worldbuilding and craft, with detailed examples from movies and books.
- Just Write: different aspects of the writing craft, illustrated by movies.
- Lessons from the Screenplay: similar content to Just Write.
- Lindsay Ellis: videos on the theory of storytelling.
- Overly Sarcastic Productions: entertaining videos on tropes as well as history.
There are a few more channels that I watch occasionally, but not enough to subscribe to them or recommend them in this list.
If you’re a writer, what YouTube channels have you found useful? Please share in the comments!
