Wiped Out

I went to the iWriteNetwork writing retreat this weekend. It was a wonderful experience. Great people, informative classes, and scrumptious food. And the digs weren't too bad either.


This is where we held the classes. Rough life, I know.
One of the open areas.


Nice large kitchen for meal preparation.
There were several common areas where people could gather to write. We had sprints, classes, a brainstorming session, prizes and even watched a movie where everyone got to figure out the beats from Blake Snyder's Save the Cat.

Good luck to everyone who starts A to Z tomorrow. I'm taking a pass. Maybe next year.

  1. That looks like an awesome place for a retreat!
    Hope you can join us for the Challenge next year. I believe the second one is where we met.

  2. How wonderful! I would love to go on a writing retreat! I was *this* close to participating in the A to Z this year but decided to pass too. Life is way too hectic right now.

  5. Given the digs you had to work with, like that theater room, it must have been a "rough" time of it lol!! Glad you enjoyed yourself :-)

    1. Our only challenge with having the classes in the theater room was there wasn't enough room for the number of people. We'll have to do something different in September.

    1. Relaxing? Define relaxing. One gal got 20,000 words in 3 days.
