A MOONDANCER WRITES US:
“The mid-August Moondance blog you just sent out is pure genius. The latest bit of Radio/Audio information is truly wonderful…very helpful…inspiring. I don’t think I can rave to you enough about how you constantly come up with wonderfully helpful things for writers. Only someone truly dedicated to writers and to the profession, as you are, would be constantly researching for us and trying to help us without vanity and competition on your part, even though you are a writer (and a wonderful one, by the way) yourself. I wish us all the luck with this newest way to get our screenplays out there, and our short stories too.” ~ Lorna Kanter, screenwriter & artist, New Jersey
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
