Retreating

Thanks to Kathy Schilbach for reminding me about this rather good competition. The prize is a six day Arvon retreat in Shropshire. All you need to do to win is write 500 words on the theme of 'retreat' and be exceedingly lucky.

I'm going on my own writing retreat in the van soon. Today I signed the contract for a book which I've not yet finished writing, so I'll be busy. Will probably find to take a few pictures of castles and stuff though.

  1. Having never had a contract to sign, I wondered if it makes it easier to work to a deadline? Good luck!

  5. That's awesome news in regards to your contract. I avoid writing competitions so others have a chance to win. Yes, not how modest I am :)

    Nothing like a plan in a caravan.

    All the best, Patsy.

    Gary :)

    1. If I find a most modest man competition, I hope you'll try it, Gary.

  11. A few days in Shropshire would be great, but will have no entry. (Darn it.) Good luck on your new project!
