I have finally taken the plunge and booked my very first writing retreat at Swanwick in Derbyshire (http://www.swanwickwritersschool.co.uk/index.asp).
There are courses every day for the week-long event, but my intention is not to cram my days with listening to everyone else. I want to learn, of course, but my main reason for going is to get away from my normal routine, to a place where I won’t be distracted by kitchen chores or pestered by a well-meaning but overly affectionate cat.
Basically, I want some ‘Me’ time.
A question to all you budding writers out there: Do you struggle to make time for writing? Does life interfere with your desire to get on and write?
I’m really looking forward to my week of writing. By then, I’m hoping to have three short stories completed and ready to publish on the Kindle. Watch this space!
