February, 2003
Went to the UCLA Extentions Writer's Studio 4-day workshop. What an experience! Our instructor, Leslie Lehr Spirson (66 Laps), took us all up and down, in, out, and around writing the first novel. This is by far the best writing class I've taken and the feedback has been tremendous. I've learned how to end each chapter and begin each chapter to try to keep the reader reading. Hook 'em! I learned to create a hook for my story. I learned about editing and revising my manscript and so much more. I'm going to have to do this on a yearly basis.
