Goodacre and Berrow’s Second Annual Writers’ Retreat

Goodacre and Berrow found that inspiration and ridiculous facial expressions were directly proportional occurrences.

When Autumn hits, several things happen. Leaves start changing colour, I start drinking hot Ribena, and my friend S.E. Berrow and I get together to have a long weekend of writing.

This Thursday marks the start of our Second Annual Writers’ Retreat. This means 4 days of us being squirreled away somewhere secret (somewhere safe) and writing to our hearts’ content.

I’m hoping for a repeat of last year. It was surprising to see exactly what I could achieve without the distractions of things like my family and the Internet. Lately, I’ve been so focused on editing The Elder Throne that The Winter Court has fallen by the wayside. Now that the editing is done and dusted, this retreat should go a long way to fixing that.

In related news, I’m starting to get ready for my first query. It’s somewhat unsettling to have a book ready to go. There aren’t any more excuses to hide behind, no reasons for why I shouldn’t send it off just yet… the time is nigh. That moment I’ve been working towards since I was seven years’ old is finally here.

So, obviously, I’ll soon be writing a blog post on how best to handle literary rejection.
