Thank you all.
Even though I have encountered some of this before, I always manage to find new take-aways. And this weekend there were plenty of those from all guests. New ideas, new techniques, things to consider, and pitfalls to avoid.
But it's the participants who can make or break these workshops. We had an excellent crew, with a high level of involvement, no-one dominating the discussions, and a level of mutual respect amongst us all.
A few others had likewise chosen to stay overnight, so I was able to have dinner with Martin, Aly and Alex. It was a fantastic evening of laughs, shared stories and experiences. And like any other group of writers, it soon turns out there are mutual friends.
Thank you for your time, and for inviting me to join you for dinner.
Of course I'm re-inspired - that's what happens on these weekends. Now all I have to do is make the time to start writing again. Like everything else, it's a matter of priorities and making a choice. Choosing to write rather than watch TV.
I choose to write. Unfortunately, I have a few very busy weeks coming on. Events and commitments which cannot be shifted.
Let's see how I go.
