“I found it very helpful to spend time looking at what genre resonated with me as a novelist and why. I feel like I’m defiantly in the right place for my values and needs as a writer. I learned some good techniques and tools to start writing and get the creative process moving. I also enjoyed testing myself to write in different styles and am looking forward to experimenting with this more. There is so much value in writing something every day—even if it’s just 5 minutes of messy uninhibited rambling. I’m a writer so I’d better just write!”
