“I came into this workshop clear that I had a nonfiction book already written, waiting for me to discover. I had tried several times and with much effort to write this book before. It always felt flat, like a textbook. It lacked my voice, and I knew it would not connect with anyone.
At the beginning of the pre-workshop preparation sessions, and the workshop itself, a story of an entrepreneur applying the lessons of my craft came pouring out. The structure of the book went from something written for my professional peers to something for the audience I was trying to reach. This did not happen with my rational mind, and I would never have made this choice for myself. I was able to hear the book speak to me.
Thank you, Tom and Janelle, for this experience.”
