As per C.’s request, here is a summary of my recent lady writing retreat. This is basically me bragging about the best week ever.
Arrive Sunday night at vacation home in Maine.
Monday – Friday
7:30am Breakfast, discuss hopes and dreams for today’s work, there was no internet so all email checking had to be done on phones (which really limits email checking)
8:00 SET THE TONE by starting a 30 minute writing session (all tone violators were lovingly but firmly shamed)
8:30 break for chocolate and coffee
8:45 two more writing sessions/coffee breaks
(personal breaks for showering and makeup by discretion)
12:00 Lunch at local coffee shop, explain our work to each other
12:00 -4:00 work at coffee shop using internet
6:00 Each lady takes turn making dinner, discuss the state of pornography, literature, hair, and STUFF
minimal drinking, early bedtime
Friday Night: GET REALLY DRUNK AND WATCH THE KEVIN COSTNER ROBIN HOOD.
Go home Saturday.
May you all get to go on such a lovely retreat someday.
