I’m off this morning for the COD Ranch, for the Arizona SCBWI retreat, hoping Regional Advisor Michelle Parker-Rock was just kidding when she said to bring insect repellent.
The weekend is about renewing the creative spirit and also about revising — it promises to be a nice mix of reflection and work. And just a little bit of fun.
Revising? I need to hear what you have to say. I’m in the belly of the beast, and it’s lonely in here. I love to revise on a sentence level but this narrative arc/structure stuff threatens to defeat me. Especially when I secretly think the manuscript is just fine as it is. I need to channel me some Kirby.
