REfreshed, REfueled, REtreated!

Uh-huh, oh yeah! That's right! I'm a new girl now. My writing confidence has been lower than a tick on the belly of a worm. But this weekend . . . Well, let's just say that I'm still flying high from being refreshed and refueled. It also doesn't hurt that Jennifer Rees, (the editor of The Hunger Games) critiqued my work and had very nice things to say about it. Things that will keep me going for quite some time.

The guest speakers in attendance were: Jennifer Rees from scholastic, Bruce Hale, Author of the Chet Gecko series among other books, and Stacy Cantor from Walker books.

It was an amazing retreat, restful and yet productive. Pure nerve-soothing, confidence-boosting fabulousness.

As I digest the things that I learned, I'll post about them here. So many great things. Enough to possibly give me blogging material for the rest of the year! In addition to Critter postings, of course.

Yeah! What wonderful news about your critique. Sounds like a wonderful time and I loved the pictures. I can't wait to hear all you have to say about the time.

Sometimes a writer needs something like this to revitalize their writing energy. I'm so glad you got so much out of it! Looking forward to reading more about it!

Am so jealous! I wanted to go to this one, but couldn't. Glad you had a brilliant time!!

C.R. Evers said...

Thnx Karen :0)

Kelly, you're right. I hope you had a great time at your retreat. I hope it was just as productive.

Terry, Thnx!

Beth, wish you could have been there. It would have been great to hang out. Maybe next year.

I'm so glad for you! We all need some "away" time to refresh, renew and refuel! Keep the momentum going, C!
