1.) Seeing Jack working at 5:30 a.m. with his headlamp (and realizing he’d been up and working since around 3:00 a.m.) No wonder he surpassed his goal of 20,000 words!
2.) Hearing that Eleanor received an email from an editor of a Big 5 publisher who is anxious to read more of her manuscript that her agent sent.
3.) Wearing pajamas and slippers for 3 days.
4.) Meeting with the locals.
5.) Listening to attendees say they can’t wait to sign up for next year’s retreat.
7.) Taking in the scenery.
8.) Having Jack slave in the kitchen on the last morning making a breakfast feast for everyone.
9.) Getting to know new NCW members Dani, Don, Beth, Kari, and Eleanor. (The perfect event to make an NCW debut!)
10.) Soaking up the amazing, creative energy generated by 14 incredible writers!
A big thank you to all of you who attended and to the YMCA of Rockies for making this a memorable 10th year of the retreat! Mark your calendars . . . we're tentatively scheduled forOctober 14-17, 2018 for our next retreat!
