Very thorough and informative. L.C.Hayden is a great instructor who provides the necessary information, while maintaining a good pace.
This was one of the most valuable workshops I've taken. Not only was the information exactly what I had hoped for, but it was delivered in a short crisp easy-to-follow style. I thank you for presenting it, and will be using all your ideas to develop my next WIP. Thank you so much.
L.C. presented a lot of really useful information, with examples, in a logical and professional way (and she is the expert mystery writer--so she knows what she's talking about!). I learned a lot, and I now have a wonderful framework to work with as I continue writing my mystery. She is accessible and gives useful and encouraging feedback. I've taken several workshops from her and consider her my personal mentor. Thank you, L.C. I'll be back for more!--Nancy
