I am thankful Ms. Gould's calm presence and subtle humor. I am thankful for the new perspectives on writing in the few, but valuable, resources and examples she provides. I am thankful for new ways of expressing myself and breaking through some of the walls in my mind.
Emily is very charming and demystifies the writing process of a "writer"
Helps with the mindset of writing Novels...and writing in General
