The fifth annual retreat for the World’s Greatest Critique Group is done. I managed to solve some major issues with my manuscript, but I still came home with mixed feelings. It is always wonderful to spend time with my writing pals, yet I found it difficult to write all day. Perhaps I’m not hopeful about the potential success of this project, or perhaps I prefer marathon revising sessions to marathon writing sessions. Next time, I’ll bring more than one project to work on.
