I attended a Biscayne Writers Workshop in 2008, on creating 4-dimensional characters, hosted by Stan Lee. It made a world of difference. Later, at Emerald City Comic Con in 2010, my quest to thank Stan for the workshop and how it changed my life resulted in a chance meeting with him where he went out of his way to encourage me. I thought of the class afterwards, and I’m still grateful for all of the amazing things that continue to happen as a result of it. Thank you for helping me to become a better writer.
