“First of all I would like to thank you for another amazing weekend that proved truly inspiring, even more so than the last workshop I attended. I’ve always felt I needed a more nurturing environment for talking about writing and what drove me and you’ve provided that for me, so thank you so much. I learned that I can have a focus on the characters and have them drive any plot I might set out to write. The questions that were raised in the group, and the suggestions you made about where this character could go were very helpful as a means of developing the character. I can now clearly see her moving through the spaces I have created, whereas before I was still a little lost. A writer once told me that the best writers never stop learning and growing, and that’s really stuck with me, and I hope to continue learning. It’s always a treat to be surrounded by people who feel the same way about writing the way I do. It’s something I often feel missing when it comes to my original writing.”
