This past week, my in-person critique group fled the city on our annual writing retreat. This year, we stayed in this lovely cottage just south of Tobermory on Lake Huron:
We had a gorgeous view of the lake from the deck:
And it got warm enough one day that a few of us even ventured into the (rather chilly) water. 🙂 We also got to witness some beautiful sunsets, like the following:
And as per tradition, on the last day everyone was present, we took a group photo down by the water. It was rather windy, as you might notice. And I ended up looking about half a foot shorter than I am due to the uneven group, heh:
The main point of these retreats, of course, is to get lots of writing done. And it was a success there as well — I am now more than 100 pages into the sequel to Earth & Sky!
