    A couple years ago I had to drop out of university. Medical problems. No need to be specific, except to say that I also stopped writing. Now, I'd been given a hard-cover copy of On Writing from a friend of a friend. It sat on my shelf for a long time. Without writing in my life, I was miserable. When things started to clear--its all relative, given that what I experienced during my short time at university is still an influence in my life--I picked up your memoir and read it, and it has made all the difference.

    It got me writing again.

    This is just to say thanks.
