As a person just trying to understand the industry and write her first manuscript, I found the class extremely helpful.
Thank you for a delightful journey through children's writing. I have learned more than I thought possible. I will continue to work on my story and see where it goes.
Thank you very much for your comments and insight! I have so much work to do to get this manuscript ready! What has also helped is reading how you responded to the other students writings. Your advice is spot-on!!! You are a great teacher! Thank you so much for your patience and kindness!
I feel my writing is stronger, and I have better tools to develop it. I am letting go of my fear that I wouldn't have a quality product to offer. Quality can be attained by effort, by reworking and trying again. No one, no matter how creative, will do everything right the first time.
Having learned what you taught us here, I believe now I can focus my efforts in the right direction.
Thank you so much for all of the materials, resources, and information you shared in this class. As many others, I wish I had taken this years ago. I have learned so much that would have helped me with my writing throughout my career. My dream is to write for children. I plan to review and absorb your course thoroughly throughout the next months - then as I apply this I hope you'll come across my name sometime as an author for children. The best to you and thank you for assisting so many hopeful writers.
All the things we read also opened up new lines of thinking. I'm saving the lists of books you recommended since there are so many wonderful examples to learn from. I know that I will continue to learn from you after the class is over. (That's one of my measures of a good teacher. If I can still learn from someone, even when I'm no longer officially still their student, that's good teaching.)
Thank you. I'm very glad I took this class. I'm also ready to take your advice and spend more time writing.
I cannot tell you what this class has meant to me. You are more than I could have ever asked for. Thank you for caring about us and guiding us ever-so-gently in a constructive, yet kind, way! So glad and honored to have this opportunity to take this class with you.
Taking this class was a wonderful experience. I learned so much, and I don't know how you managed to read, review, and respond to everyone's postings (with enthusiasm, no less). I would definitely be interested in a sequel to this class. In the meantime, I signed up for a class on writing for magazines.
Your encouragement meant a lot.
