Today I’m at a resort in Jupiter, Florida. It’s a writing retreat for one whole week.
I’ve taken my paper and pens and lots of sun block lotion. The best part, I haven’t left my home.
Yes I’m doing a virtual retreat with my writing group.
I’ve made a goal of 50 pages for this week. Send up some prayers for me. If you’ll like to keep up with me at the retreat, I will be posting my reports here too.
I did three pages last night. However I did come up with an idea for the honeymoon, so I had to do a little research for it. Found what I was looking for, so hopefully I’ll get more pages written.
I’m looking for some music to get me in the mood, then I’m heading out to the beach.
Goal : 50 pages – 47 to go
I was on a roll last night. I wrote the wedding scene, the honeymoon and three other scenes.
I was listening to some Christian music and the words just flew from my fingers. It was like watching a movie and I was right there.
GOAL: 50 – 35 pages to go
I’m excited to say I wrote 12 pages yesterday. My story is moving right along. Everything I hoped for. I even came up with a few new ideas for conflict and for another story.
I think the spa treatment put me over the top.
Looking forward to today’s writing.
Hope everyone is having a good time writing.
GOAL: 50 - 23 pages to go
The family swooped down on me saying I couldn’t leave them at home, so for two days I have to hang out with the family. You can never get rid of the family. LOL
I was able to squeeze two pages out.
GOAL: 50 - 21 pages to go
Hanging out with the family today. Saw Last Holiday. It was a cutemovie, will definitely be adding to my DVD collection.Did get three pages done.
GOAL 50 - 18 pages to go
We had a great day. Had dinner together, watch the lastest Harry Potter, which we all enjoyed. I put the kids to bed and was able to write 12 pages.
Goal 50: 6 pages to go
I woke up early this morning, I wanted to reach my goal. I wrote 13 pages. Yes I reached my goal and beyond. Thank you Lord.
I’m all packed and ready to catch my plane. I’m sorry to leave the resort, it’s been a great week and its shown me I can meet deadlines and write when I need to.
Goal 50: 57 pages
See what you can do if you put your mind to it. Now I need 93 pages and I'll be done with the manuscript.
