Erin Green Author - blog
In little under ten minutes, I'll be signing on-line for a weekend writing retreat hosted by Alison May and Janet Gover. Two fabulous authors, who I've secretly adopted during my publishing journey as part of my mentoring team, known to me as the 'fairy godmothers'.
If you've followed my journey then you already know, there's nothing I like more than a weekend writing retreat. Given that we can't safely attend our usual style of 'weekend of writing' - the 'Godmothers' have put together an on-line package in which all sessions are via Zoom or Moodle and I can't wait to begin!
The only difference so far, I haven't packed a suitcase, I haven't driven and I haven't said goodbye to my dog. Shhh, don't tell them, but my little writing buddy will be joining me this weekend by sleeping in the armchair.
I always set a word count goal prior to attending writing retreats, and this is like no other: 10,000 words before bedtime on Sunday!
I have a one to one discussion session booked for Saturday afternoon - in which to discuss my current project, yeah, the secret one! Other authors are having their chapter/synopsis submissions evaluated, but I requested slightly different given where I am in my current project.
I'll give updates as during the weekend: the good, the bad and the ugly - depending on how my words flow.
