Well Trudi and Paul arrived. We ate out. We eat in. There is chocolate, all kinds. I bombed last night with a headache so I could only hear the echoes of the conversation. Today we’ve been talking writing and agents. I found Donald Maas’ How to write the breakout novel on the bookshelf. As this was the agent I was suggesting Russell submit to he’s grabbed the book and is now ensconced on the couch and is quiet for a change. Kylie is actually writing and Matthew has just got up after having slept through his alarm which he set for 11.00am. I know it’s Monday but it feels like Sunday.
As well as having a headache last night my hands packed it in big time, curtailing my writing effort to 2500 words. I can only do sittings in 500 word lots, sometimes now at 100 words. You don’t have to pity me as I have plenty for myself.
However, I sort of thought I would have issues so I’m enjoying the pace and the company and the chocolate and cruising along. Love writing retreats with this gang of writerly friends.
