We’ve been having a great time at the Colorado Romance Writers’ Retreat. I’m sitting at the down stairs kitchen at the Mountain Lodge at Amberwood where a family of mountain sheep are resting for the day. They’ve been with us all day, taking in the sun. It’s peaceful up in Estes Park and yes, I’m getting some writing down as well. We have eleven people up here. Half us came up on Thursday and the rest on Friday. We’ve been handing prizes this weekend like the ones below. People have set goals. I think mine might have been too lofty: 12000 words and I’m up to 3500 words, but I’ve not give up yet.
Saturday is our last full day. Tomorrow we return to civilization and back to work. I’ve enjoyed this retreat and my story is coming along. I’ve been working on a young adult story that I will publish under J.L. Bowen.
