  • Writing up a letter today, thanking Brad and Nat for all their help with my screenplay. You just can't beat that kind of advise!
  • OK this was just fun. Hats off to the three pitchers! So Brave! It was informal and slow paced, giving us the time to feel safe, as though guests Brad and Nat and ST32ers Allen and RB, all those providing critique really really cared.
