Writers Retreat Wrap-Up

Writers Retreat via Mt. Washington was a success, a smashing, fantastic success! I finished ALL my revisions for Gluttony AND I was able to do research for my Untitled ms. These two tasks alone would have taken me a number of weeks at home.

Lots of laughter abounded(when we could drag ourselves away from our work) and lots of familial love. Cause that's what my writing group is becoming, my other family.

A few things I learned while at the retreat and who I learned it from in brackets are as follows

  • Just because you hire an editor, doesn't mean he/she is always right about your work. (Sandy & Kathie)
  • Critiquing isn't painful if its done with a group who actually cares about you and your success. (Kathie, Sandy, Jim, Poul, Charity & Clive)
  • Being away from home DOES mean you can get more work done. (Shannon)
  • Reclusive writer's need friends to turn to that can understand their angst of the moment.(Charity)
  • The hot tub is very hot and should be used with caution. In other words, get out before you pass out. (Shannon)

Three days of nothing but writing, writing discussions, more writing and re-writing left me with only one thought. I can't wait till I get to do this again :)

Those who are thrown into fits of rage or bouts of enfeebled snark by replica watches sale like this will have plenty to say, but in my opinion, the dial and case look cool, refreshing, and fun. And he took a plane to rolex replica sale to get the watch. How he did it, I do remeber, but he came to replica watches uk and got it somehow. The reason he did it. Was he could get it send to Denmark. Because of the customs, they will take it and not return the rolex replica sale. Or do you have a phone nummer I could call you. Or any other way to communicate. Now they have destroyed it. The gradient dial is nice but then marred by the replica watches printed on it, and I appreciate the use of green highlight instead of red, but other than that this watch looks like a giant disaster. Apart from his fee some of the hublot replica will be quite pricy. For a start it has a new case. Attached is a copy the Customs Notice of Removal. They confiscated my watch.
