“More than anything, this workshop was about discovery for me. I discovered I am very language-driven in my writing, that I am more intuitive than planful, and that it really does help to combine the two. I was not sure I was a story teller, I felt I had some writing ability but wasn’t sure I could write a story from beginning to end. Now I know I can.

How did it feel to write a story overnight? Stressful. Having said that, had we not been given a deadline and a word count, I might not have pushed myself to finish the story.

Thank you. As far as first workshop experiences go, it was just what I needed.”
