I am sad to say retreat is over L I am happy to say it was a great success J I’ve said it more times than I can count how good it is if you are planning on becoming or are an author to get together with other authors.
There was ten of us throughout the weekend, not all at the same time, but at one point or another over the course of the weekend. We all stayed in the Slumber Party room of the house we rented for the weekend J
We had a writing room where we spent a good portion of our time. We enjoyed a fantastic speaker on Saturday morning, an evening out on the town Saturday evening, and lots of fun in between.
I hated to see the weekend come to a close, but as most good things it must J I think mainly the reason I hate to see it end is because I enjoy the company of these wonderful ladies so much. We all just click when it comes to writing.
One thing I walked away with that I really hadn’t noticed before was we’ve all spent a good deal of time together over the course of several years now. We’ve walked the writing path with one another and it is amazing to see where each of us are today compared to where we were all those years ago. If you sit back and listen to each person talk about their writing, you realize the wheels of progress have taken place.
I’m so thrilled to be in the company of so many talented people, but best of all, I am glad to call each of them friend.
We gained three new members to our chapter this weekend. Bringing us closer to our goal of full affiliation with our National mother. We’ve set in motion a fantastic group of stories for an anthology we were going to release in June but have now decided to hold off until August due to a couple more stories to be added J We’re in the process now of getting the cover made and soon will have teasers for all of you to enjoy J
I have to say all in all I consider this weekend a huge success for us. It was our first retreat as a chapter and to have so many join us for our special weekend was quite wonderful.
We’ve voted to remain using this quaint farmhouse as our retreat location until we outgrow it because it was just so perfect for our needs. I have to say also I really love the compliments that have come our way after all the hard work our membership has put into making this chapter a writing home for all of us. It proves to me we are succeeding in our vision one step at a time.
Everyone have a lovely night!!!
Blessings to all!!!
