    Perhaps in the future I can take advantage of this. I am trying to convert my novel into a screen play. Good to know, thanks.

    There will be future classes. The SeeMaxRun classes are pretty new, at the moment I am doing one every six months but hopefully I will be able to schedule more often in the future.
