A few weeks ago, I went on my second writer’s retreat with the people in my writing group. We had cabins out at Mahoney State Park. It was a great week for writing, there were times that were so peaceful. I did a little writing and editing. I worked on some new stuff, but mostly refined pieces I had written and transferred handwritten pieces onto the computer. That really seems to hold me up since I seem to do so much better with handwriting my stories first, yet I type so much faster? (I am going to check out a pen that Target has on sale that supposedly keeps track of what you have written and will send it to your computer – worth checking out in my mind).
I had a story that I was considering while I was at the writer’s retreat, but every time I worked on it – I only got as far as what I had already completed. I am proud to say that last week I was able to write it – pen to paper. Normally, it can take months (years) before I then get it transferred to the computer, now I feel good enough about this story, I plan on getting it into the computer this week. I am even thinking of considering entry into the next Writer’s Digest contest, but I might not as I want to start submitting it. I am actually very pleased with it, so we shall see.
