I am so lucky! My Rainforest Writers Village retreat followed directly on the heels of my Dead Man’s Flats retreat, so I get about 11 days of concentrated work on the edits. We did have a hiccup when one of our friends came down with pneumonia! Spent a few hours in Emergency before she was air lifted back to Canada. Wow. Glad everything turned out for the best. But still, I got lots of writing done, AND I got to present to the other writers at the retreat. Met new people and connected with old friends, and learned some cool stuff from the other presenters. Win Win.
