I’m just finishing a writing retreat day at Retreat West. The sun is setting on the Exeter skyline, on what has been a beautiful winter’s day. Here is the view from my desk as I write this post:
I’ve never taken part in a day like this before, and I’m surprised how it has focused my mind on the job at hand. I’ve written nearly 2,000 words. A new chapter in my novel, which, earlier in the week I was struggling to get started with. Thanks to Amanda Saint, who organises these days. Tea, coffee, cake and lunch were all provided. So I’ve been able to simply write. Luxurious. I will be back.
P.S. Nearly two weeks into 2013, and I haven’t posted about my new, old typewriter. Yes, I’ve succumbed. Stay tuned.
