Hi Rev Writing Retreat

I just spent five days and four nights with three fantastically talented people in Lonesome Hollow, a remote location in Wisconsin.
I spent that time writing. Well, reading and editing, but also writing.
Sure, we ate, laughed, drank, laughed, and even slept a little, but mostly, we worked. And laughed.

Hi Rev is right!

And proud.
I have really enjoyed my experience with the Kindle World and publishing Baker’s Dozen and Kinder Garden, Mary O’Reilly Paranormal Mystery Stories, but I’m ready to release a story in MY world again.

Pocket Money was my first publication. I love that it’s a book. A real book. A softcover book with a gorgeous glossy cover and a fully developed original story printed on the paper pages. I want that physical connection again.

So I spent five days and four nights working on A Stranger’s Child, a contemporary continuation of the Pandora myth. I cannot wait to introduce it to you!
I accomplished a LOT this retreat, but writing is a lot of work and there is still much to do.

Reading, writing, editing, critique, reading, writing, editing, beta readers, reading, writing, editing, formatting, reading, writing, editing, cover design, reading, writing, editing, blurb, reading, writing, editing, upload, reading, writing, editing, publishing, printing, DONE.

Stay tuned, it’s coming…

after my nap.


About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
