I wanted to update you all on me and my writing if you wouldn't mind the shift from reading to writing books. ;)
I am currently on my first writer's retreat. For those who aren't sure what that is, a group of writers and authors go away from the world for a while (in this case just a weekend) and inspire eachother and write, write, write!
We are currently in the mountains of Utah, gorgeous and green this time of year, in a huge, beautiful 3 story condo. It is beautiful and has been so good for me.
I was super nervous at first because I only know one of the girls here as an aquantance, but I couldn't be more thrilled that she invited me. Everyone here is awesome. I am never ever dissappointed with the people I meet in the YA book world. Whether it is a fellow book lover, reviewer, author, agent, editor etc. There is something that runs deep within us, a shared love of the written word that connects us all.
I wrote just shy of 3000 words last night which is huge for me as I had a goal to write 3000 words in the entire month of May!
I am off to write. I hope you are all reading or writing lots and doing well!
