    Hello Mary Lou,

    I attended your Art and Craft of the Personal Story workshop, via Zoom, while vacationing in Hawaii; it was awesome! I didn’t know if I’d be able to stay awake but you made it very easy to do so. I learned a great deal from your instruction. I was actual able to construct an outline of a short story during the workshop at 4am; it was really fun and amazing all at the same time. Moving forward with my writing, I plan to use your handout and this recording to guide me through my story box. I know it will make the project flow smoother, enhance my creativity, and the end result will be an excellent story. Thanks so much for your brilliance, story telling wisdom, teaching style, and guidance. I truly appreciate you.
