  1. Eloise Kovak

    What did I like about the MSUP? Well, I appreciated being able to read something every day to motivate me to keep writing. The MSUP is a library of information that got me up to speed writing my memoir. I thought I knew a lot already, and perhaps I did, but not this much! It worked well for me.
