Writing in the New Forest
It’s getting exciting – only a month to go until our first U.K. Writing Retreat in the beautiful New Forest.
I’m really looking forward to spending time with our authors and making sure they have everything they need to get on with writing their books. By that I don’t mean just the physical things like paper, laptops and pens. While all those things are important, what I’m really referring to is the mindset and freedom to just let go and write.
A retreat provides you with so much more than just the time to write. It’s provides a safe space where you don’t have to worry about anything else. The usual daily stuff that takes up so much time, gets done for you.
There’s nothing to worry about – no distractions – apart from a game of table tennis or pool in the games room if you’re up for it- no need to go shopping or do any cooking. Everything is provided for our participants – all they have to do is turn up and focus on writing their book in a inspirational location.
As one of our participants said one year:
“All I had to worry about this morning was brushing my teeth.”
How often do you get the chance to say that?
Walk and Talk
Our programme will be similar to our Spanish retreat – we will be starting the day with walk and talk to get the motivation flowing. Our budding authors can then work at their own pace – writing away or choosing to receive coaching and advice from our experienced Book Mentor and Coaches.
As writing can sometimes be a lonely occupation, in the evening we will be enjoying a lovely meal together and talking about the day’s productivity.
