So last Friday I hopped on a plane to Charlotte for a weekend I’ll never forget. (Also known as Weekend of Awesome.)
If you missed the buzz about WOA last year, what happens is a bunch of blogging writers meet up to write, talk craft, and – well, not to sound cheesy — become friends. Last year I wasn’t able to attend the awesome event, which was far less than awesome, so I was beside myself with excitement about this year.
We rented a gorgeous lake house just north of Charlotte, NC and spent the weekend enjoying the view as we challenged ourselves to become better writers.
I’ll tell you, there’s nothing quite as inspiring as sitting in a room with seven other writers who understand you – being able to ask questions and talk candidly about this journey. It was fantastic to say the least.
Between sipping coffee on the dock in the mornings, word-warring the day away, and giggling over dinner and movies every night, I’d say it was probably the best writing retreat EVER. I left with great memories, great friends, an extra 7k words on my manuscript, and as inspired as I’ve ever been to keep going.
BIG SAPPY GROUP HUG!!
