Most of us know of someone in our circles that is writing or wanting to write. Joining writing groups can be expensive and a little crowded. If you are just wanting to hang out and talk about writing, why not gather up those friends and get away with your laptops. It’s a great idea! Author Julie Musil did just that.

Mini Writing Retreat #IWSG
Welcome, Insecure Writers! Not a member of this group yet? Remedy that STAT!
I’m currently on a mini writing retreat with two of my closest writing buddies. How is it going? I’ll report back later! But I did want to chat abut a couple of things. Writing retreats can be expensive and inconvenient–especially if you’re on a tight budget and have little kids at home. I’m not one to dump a lot of money into the writing process.

I can’t wait to get started recording an audio book. I’ve created an account with ACX. But before I add any recordings I have to do a lot of practicing first. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to keep a steady even toned voice when reading aloud. And on top of that, I have to stay close to the microphone. I’ve recently discovered a post at the AM Institute on other audio resources. It is an awesome and informative post. I plan to really dive into each and every suggested site. Actually, I already have. I hope you find this information helpful.
