Inspired writers who have published books
I want to tell you that you are a really good teacher. In the four years, I attended your writing class, I have learned a lot.
Thanks so much for the interesting workshop. The information on the IBPA should be particularly useful to me. Also I will definitely check out Amazon’s Space as you receommended.
Thanks also for taking a look the opening of my urban fantasy novel.
Thank you so very much for all you have done to make my four years in Pompano so productive. I owe a huge debt to you for inspiring me to write so many different kinds of work over these last few years. Your keen insights, observations, and suggestions have helped me become better at the craft. I realize that each piece continues to be a work in progress and I am very grateful to have been part of the community.
“As a child, I always thought something good was going to happen. I kept thinking, ‘Well, things aren’t so bad, are they?’ I just didn’t let things make me unhappy. I was a happy child, and I also think I am a happy old lady.”
This is a quote from Florence Hofmann Mills, then just weeks away from her 100th birthday, as we were writing her book, Florence’s Story.
There was a big party on a yacht in Fort Lauderdale when she reached 100. I took a picture of her with the ship’s captain splendid in his whites and Florence dazzling in her pink skirt and jacket and glamorous, coiffed white hair.
Her strong hand-written message on the title page of her book was: “Dear Marj, This story could never have been told without your keen interest and skillful questioning.”
Thanks for an informative workshop. Sometimes that’s all it takes to get the juices flowing again.
