"Good morning, Norman,
The premise of the "Getting There from Here" workshop is that you take whatever writing project you want to work on, set a goal for our six weeks together, and practice some techniques, try out some tools that help…"
"Hi Maureen! I signed up for your writing class. I'm all over the place, and I'm also very old, but I hope to be heard from out of your class. I am trying to write something called "Recycled Awareness" which is a bit weird, but I…"
"I wish you all the best with your book, Rita! As a long-time writing instructor and writer, I've learned that writers are just different, at a very basic level. If I don't write for three days because I have a sinus…"

Hi Maureen! I signed up for your writing class. I'm all over the place, and I'm also very old, but I hope to be heard from out of your class.
