"...In day 1 of creating a workshop, you instruct us to pick a topic and then develop an outline. I have brainstormed several topics that I know inrepparttar 109633 long run all will be workshops. What I need help is in deciding which one to pick.

"Here's my dilemma -- My first thought is to pick a topic that will be somewhat easy for me to do. It being my first workshop, I didn't want to choose a difficult topic. Is thisrepparttar 109634 right thinking? If so, it narrows it down to 2 topics. Following that decision is another one to make...how long to makerepparttar 109635 workshop.
