MadCap Retreats

I’ve got something really cool to talk to you all about today. It has to do with writing, something you guys know I also love.
Sometimes writing can feel like an isolating and daunting task. Every day you can sit down and put a ton of work into what you’re writing, but when you look back you think it’s terrible! Sometimes it even makes you doubt your love for writing. It can make you hate building a world or crafting a story about characters you love and hate.
Whenever this happens to me I always feel alone. Then I remember that once you are part of the writing community you are never alone.

This August, Courtney C Stevens, author of Faking Normal and The Lies about Truth will be hosting a retreat weekend, The Anatomy of Publishing, as part of MadCap Retreats.
From Courtney:

I spent 200+ hours studying and translating his work for young adult culture. I built a personal workbook for individual manuscripts. I built stopgaps for others, and then I led a retreat. It helped other writers. Now, I want to do that again in August.

So, this incredible long post is an invitation to join me for a weekend retreat. Please click this link and check it out:

I won’t promise you the earth will tilt on its axis if you attend, but I can promise you’ll leave more confident in your own abilities as an artist. (Not to mention, you’ll leave with a personal marketing plan. See the retreat description for more information.) If you need a pick-me-up, this might be it for you. Take a risk with me. Find your stopgap.

This is such a great opportunity for anyone who loves writing to attend a really great retreat! Courtney is also offering some really cool prizes, all available here
