“ I so enjoyed my visit with the Sunday East Valley Workshop meet up. Writing has always been a love of mine however, so much of my time has been spent on other duties of life. It is in this phase of my personal movie where time itself seems to have allotted me the favor to pursue this very personal and fulfilling desire. I view writing as an art and one which does not come easily, therefore a desire to learn is imperative in order to cultivate ones own specific style and voice. It is this that I seek through these meetings. I feel so blessed to have this time to be amongst those who share this art form. I sincerely thank all of the wonderful artist who take the time to spend with me as I develop from the shaky novice of words to the empowered and illustrative creative writer. All the best until we meet again, Loretta Kovacevich ( Laurie) [masked] [masked] ”
