  • Excellent! Very motivational - I usually get stymied by wanting to come up with the perfect first sentence. Lisa's encouragement to just start was as important as the specific writing tips.
  • Got me excited about starting my mother's story. Thanks for the storytoolz, scrivener and voyzee suggestions!
  • Great webinar! Gave me the "kick in the pants" I need to finish a writing project I started a few weeks ago. Thanks to Lisa! and to Geoff for all you do for these webinars!
