The most enormous thankyou to Tom and Jordy (lovely eldest son and daughter in law) for a wonderful wonderful writers retreat at their gorgeous home in Mullumbimby. Gifts, inspiration, cups of tea and chocolate cake greeted me on arrival. An itinerary had been devised for me and writing exercises took the form of a lucky dip. I picked out three, settled down outside with faithful hound and new pens at my side, and got stuck in. What fun - I loved it! Suddenly it was time for lunch and then an afternoon of editing and typing up of work from the morning. As a surprise, the guys took me to a fabulous spa for an evening sauna and refreshing dip in the icy plunge pool. Then it was time for herbal tea, a quick scurry home in the rain and hot showers. Another beautiful vegetarian feast was prepared while I sipped my wine and tidied up my efforts from the day, to be read by my awesome hosts. An early night...and the sweetest of dreams..... One of those magical days I will never forget. Thank you Lovelies!
The writing exercises. Fun, varied - and against the clock!
Sleeping dogs....and chocolate cake to die for!
Then back to work......
And at the end of a hard day's work...a visit to Kiva Spa....
And then home for a glass of red - and something to read perhaps, after all that scribbling!
Hi - and welcome to my blog! I write women's fiction and short stories. Proud to call myself a Welsh Australian (Waussie!) I live in beautiful Brisbane and write full time.
