The retreat was amazing. I met other talented authors and we spent a weekend of writing, discussion, workshops and readings. We were honored to have among us Jane Conly, Newbery Honor Book award recipient. Everyone read or shared from their work and every single reading was amazing. Two illustrators shared what they were working on, both writing and illustration. The retreat was limited to 13 attendees which kept it from being overwhelming.
The retreat center brought in amazing food and we consumed wine brought by attendees. If anyone went hungry it was their own fault. So much food. When we gathered at the big tables for lunch and dinner the conversation was stimulating.
There's nothing like working alongside other accomplished writers. The fireplace blazed, snowflakes swirled outside the windows and fingers all around me tapped keys furiously. I completed three and a half chapters of my work and edited over 100 pages. Will I attend another retreat? You bet I will!
