Oh why can’t I be granted the wish to simply write, twenty-four seven, if I choose to?
Still, I learnt a few yoga moves from Lucy, our instructor at Arvon, and through chatting with the other writers on the retreat, learnt other relaxation techniques which I hope will serve me well in the future.
I can happily say that as well as firming up my story plot and structure, I wrote more than double the amount of words I had written in six months prior to the retreat. I also met some very interesting people, including Debbie Flint, a romantic fiction writer and (would you believe it?) QVC presenter! We all had some good laughs and it was encouraging being with over a dozen writers who were in different stages with their writing.
