    I chose this class on impulse after reading Terri Main's blog advertising the class. (A member of SavvyAuthors since 2015 and just now realizing that these blogs contain a wealth of information!) She advised that writers, including wannabes, don't have to blow a fortune hiring an editor. We can learn to do our own editing and significantly cut down on our costs of forwarding a book toward publication. Terri's very thorough in her step-by-step process of how to read through your manuscript for proper story structure, setting, characters and POV. She welcomes questions and has endless patience when it comes to assisting those of us who are clueless at times (speaking for myself, of course). Glad that I happened to read her blog and located this class. Ending my Savvy year of courses on a high note! Thanks, Terri!
