A few people asked how last week’s Shenandoah Writers (IRL) write-in went, so I wanted to share. I thought it went very well!
All SW(IRL) members attended, and we each got a lot written. Two members were actually handwriting—one was doing outlining and the other was working on a new short story, I believe. Another focused on editing her current WIP, and I was, of course, soldiering on with Sheena.
The husband-and-wife duo writing upstairs did a combined 4000 words that day—very impressive—and we all went out for an early dinner to celebrate the beautiful weather and our writing success. 🙂
I’ll admit, it took me a while to get into the writing groove—I’m generally a shut-myself-up-in-my-office-and-write-in-complete-silence kind of a writer, but the words began to flow, once I buckled down. I wrote about 1600 words that day, and once the clock struck five, I was actually sad we had to stop because I was really in “the zone” then!
A good day all around. I’m sure we’ll do this again, and I suggest you try it with a group as well. It’s an interesting and very different experience!
