I'm Home!

I'm back from the writer's retreat and it's really an understatement to say it was a fabulous weekend. It was SO much more! It was energizing, enlightening, fun, concentrated, connecting, relaxing, hilarious, bonding perfection. In short, a perfect writer's weekend with no pressure.

Michael Hauge really presents his info a way that is easy to grasp and makes sense. Sure, he's talking about screenwriting to some extent, but he's tailored it to books and it still rings very true. And his examples (mostly movies we've all seen) make his techniques crystal clear.

Now, I'm still recovering so I'm not posting any notes yet, but I will soon. Let me reorganize a bit and I'll talk about what I learned and what resonated the most for me.


  1. I can't wait. Sometimes its hard to write about what you have learned because you almost have to use it in order to internalize it. At least that is how I feel about the two day Deb Dixon workshop I attended recently.

  2. Sounds great, Kristen. I look forward to you posting on your notes.

  3. Sounds like a fabulous weekend - just what you needed!

  4. Do you remember when Mel drunkenly dragged him over to our table at the bar after the RITA's?

    Good times.

  5. Happy for you having a great weekend and yes I am also drolling about the notes. Don't prolong the suspense please.
