My learning style never responded to writing courses all the way through several colleges. Then, in my last year of college, a good poetry teacher and a good English teacher sparked a glimmer of interest. I saw the light after college when I happened to write a satirical letter to the editor while living in Santa Fe, NM in 1993. IT was about women fighter pilots and PMS and it published. That was when I understood that I could write, especially if I had editors!
