Just wanted to drop a note and tell you how invigorated I was by your workshop on Saturday. Despite the fact that I’ve been a professional writer (staff and freelance) off and on for some 25 (!) years, I have found myself in the doldrums lately as I try to redesign my life. Besides enjoying your energy and humor, I really appreciated the concrete tips on everything from vivid writing to drumming up business. You certainly packed a lot into a one-day class. It made me feel that it *is* possible to do some of the things I’ve dreamed of.
I ran right home and registered a web domain name, and plan to follow through on the “assignments” you gave us over the next few weeks, between freelance odd jobs, personal writing, mothering, and housekeeping… I already have a writers’ group (newly formed from another Writing Salon class) and basic journalism experience–I just need to put my ideas into action.
Many thanks again!
