Probably the best writers' w/e yet!
The usual format of low-tech post-it notes for group suggestions and feedback, to balance the time spent on laptops and web-pages...
... And to balance all the writing-time that produced new story outlines and chapters, there was a degree of silliness in the pursuit of dolphin equestrian excellence so useful to the sci-fi authors in the group...
With the inevitable up-ending finale!
Weather was mixed, which meant some time outside and some in the roundhouse.
As usual, time was very flexible, 3 days or more or less depending on choice and the chance to visit the famous bookshops of Hay-on-Wye. Plenty of flexibility for walks, swims, discussions about writing, and some quiet time to... actually write.
No watching powerpoint presentations –– there are plenty of those online! Instead, there was time to read samples of writing for supportive feedback and discussion. Plus working together on issues of getting published once fully polished.
Nearly everyone tried out the AUDIOBOOK recording system, and found it informative and useful for editing, even if they were still unsure of actually producing their own audiobook.
