Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I learned about this program in 2009. I have been writing stories to entertain myself and a few friends since I was little but had never seriously worked on anything that approached novel length. It was a test of discipline to keep writing regularly during the thirty day period. It was with great satisfaction that I finished the 50,000 word rough draft. Through doing this project I learned more about my strengths as a writer and where I needed to improve. The forums are excellent for advice and support and I found much of them inspiring with helpful advice and encouragement.

Greater since of self in my writing and what i am capable of.
