The first Editing in Paradise retreat for 2011 has just wrapped up. This retreat we had all novelists, writing in different genre from family drama, to fantasy. Each manuscript with its own charms and challenges; each writer putting so much heart and soul into the 6 days that on the final day, it was quite a wrench to leave. Was it just that Portsea turned on such splendid days and the dolphins frolicked in the bay (on cue, almost) or that the mix of bloody hard work and fun was intoxicating (or was that Terry’s wine?) or…the wealth of stories and many breakthroughs…
Not sure. But I do know we all had a great 6 days.
And we’ll do it again in 2012…Mornington Peninsula in February is quite a find.
