    3/5,
    I'm giving this workshop a 3 only because of the unrealistic timeline for assignments. Too much was expected in a short amount of time. The information provided was rich and I learned so much -- things that will help me do a better job at crafting my book, but the assignments -- all required within a week -- were too much. Not that I'm any different from the others who signed up ( for $50 I might add), but my 10 hour work days made it almost impossible to complete the expected work. I liked this workshop and I hope next time, considerable time is given to complete one assignment before the next one is due.

      I understand completely and I'll be glad to help out if you'd like to finish the assignments. I think it might be helpful, too, to have the assignments, or at least the first one, a week before the workshop starts.
