I’m so excited! This week is the annual ANWA Writers Retreat in the cool country of the mountains of Arizona. This is my fourth year attending. We’re staying at a nice cabin, about 30 of us, shutting out the world and just writing. Last year I used the 3 days away from the responsibilities of home to complete a rewrite of BIG IN JAPAN. This year I’m planning to plow through 100 pp of my rewrite of my art novel.
It’s great to be with like-minded people, to be around women who totally understand the obsession to immerse in a laptop screen and simply type words upon words hour after hour.
I hope all the women who go this year accomplish their retreat goals–and that they set them high!
Plus, since it’s 111 degrees here, I hope we get a reprieve from this infernal heat. Bleah. Seriously? 111 degrees? Come ON. Bring on the monsoon season, already. Send us some rain!
