HUMP Day Behind!

I want to thank Michael Gillian Maxwell for making my first JMWW Flash Fiction course one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! His enthusiasm, willingness to try new approaches, coaching/communication skills and natural talent all added up to the highlight, and surprise of my summer. Thanks, Jen Michalski for suggesting this, and Michael, for signing on.

    Hi Robert,
    I was blown away with surprise when I got to the last paragraph of this post. I had no idea and my jaw just dropped! Wow! Thank YOU for a wonderful, stimulating and most inspiring course. It was the perfect next step for my work and really gave me a jump start in a new direction. I deeply appreciate your patience, humor, and encouragement and your constructive insights. It was really fun and most memorable!
