Thanks for everyone's comments.
, the video looks lovely. I hope I can get some writing done and not be too distracted with the gorgeous setting.
Yes, I saw that the house previously belonged to Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. Yoikes! That does set the tone. LOL
I’m planning to use this is retreat to get a lot of editing done, but you know what happens to the best laid plans. Also, it’s always nice to chat about writing.
, it would be lovely to smuggle you there.
There is a very good value writing retreat in Ireland that a friend has just been back from. She says she got 18k words written and had a wonderful time.
I’ve chatted online to a few lovely writers about Arvon, and they have said all good things. I know of one bad experience but this was for an author writer who went ten years or so ago (and things have changed very much she said).
, I agree that Arvon course are very expensive and so when I was given 75% off the 5 day course, I was already packing my bags in my head. My husband though, was: 'I thought you had won something, but they want you to pay £200 and they don’t cover travel either?' (by the way does anyone else want to have a moan at cynical spouses? He thinks writing is an expensive hobby.
Will let you know how it all goes. Also, will try to take pictures (but no promises).
