Writing Retreat Results

Mia Moore and myself spent the weekend in Oklahoma at a lakeside house working on our respective publishing efforts.
U cranked out 8000 words for Corporate Realist and also did some organizing on other book projects.
Ms Moore assembled 16000 words for her first book of her Flying Commando series. A lot of it was pre-existing content but she got up on the wave and carried on and on.
We are now planning a second book writing weekend on the Texas Gulf Coast for February. In the meantime I am working on marketing and sales preparation for Corporate Realist.

Writing Retreats in 2017

After trying without much success to complete the first Corporate Realist book in calendar 2017, I came to the conclusion that I need a different writing space where I can work uninterrupted and focus.
So, for 2017, I am planning writing retreats at our friends’ lake shore house in Lake Raymond Gary in Oklahoma.
Our friend Mia Moore, also a writer with the same challenges, will be joining me. We plan to spend an entire weekend jump-starting our writing in January. My target is another 10000 words for Corporate Realist, and the completion of storyboarding for another book project.
