The closing of the 405 this weekend will suck, but Writing Pad's classes can take the pain out of being stuck at home this weekend! Sign up for http://www.writingpad.com/classesbydate.htm#CHARACTER, our fantastic online class that will help you develop the most amazing characters you have ever written. Pour yourself some iced tea, grab a cookie, fire up your laptop, and it's almost as fun as being at the Pad! Call 323-333-2954 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to enroll in this class or one of our in-person classes later in the month before they fill up!
