and boy are my arms tired . . .
Sort of sounds like an old joke doesn't it, but, no, for real, my fingers are tired from typing. I got so so so much done that I'm actually looking forward to the rest of 2012. When projects tend to drag or the last 20 pages feel overwhelming, then we need to get away and concentrate. What I started last year (a mere seed) at the SCBWI New Year's Writer retreat at the Chicago Cenacle I was able to FINISH. Yay!
So for those of you who didn't sign up for the retreat or didn't think of it at the time, please consider taking a retreat, sign out a room at the Cenacle* and get started or push through to the other side.
*Rates are VERY reasonable and include meals.
