Writing Retreat

Keleigh signed me up for a writing retreat that was held this past Saturday. I didn't really have any idea what to expect, but it turned out to be wonderful. I wrote for hours on end, and while I was distracted at times, I really did it. I wrote for almost seven straight hours. The story that I posted earlier (it still doesn't have a name), is now finished.

I wrote over 5000 words at the retreat, and I'm really pleased with the first draft, and I hope I'll get the chance to do some revisions and send it off to some magazines. Maybe someone will want to print it, and give me a few dollars. That'd be great. If not, eh, it's not so bad. I'm happy with the story, and that's enough.

So, you want to read it? Let me know, and I'll send it on. I might post the whole thing once I've done some revisions, but that'll be a while.

If you're in the southeast michigan area, and you're a writer that needs a jump-start, you should get in touch with Dave Storer. He's the creativity coach that organized this retreat, and he's already been a big help.
