A Day Apart -- WOW!

Last Saturday, July 30, 2011, Donna and Jean met with seven eager Write2Igniters. We spent a day apart from our everyday lives, a day revising one of our manuscripts, a day apart to see those manuscripts in fresh, new ways.

Each participant came armed with her best manuscript, her laptop and flash drive, and a willingness to learn from each other.

By the time we parted ways we were all inspired, informed, a few steps farther down the road than when we came, and totally exhausted!

Brain work is hard work, folks! But everyone agreed that the day was a smashing success.

We listened and questioned, reasoned and critiqued.
We polished and thought, and critiqued again.

We brain-stormed and revised, and critiqued some more.

We punched our little keyboards and flashed our little flash drives.

We printed, then critiqued again!

It was tiring but fun and profitable. And to top it off, we made some wonderful new friends.

Thanks, Camilla and Carol, Rosemary and Joan, Caroline, Angela and Kavitha. You made the day worthwhile.

Maybe we’ll have another A Day Apart in a locale near you.

And maybe, just maybe, YOU will join us.
We sure hope so.

Remember our Write2Ignite! Conference 2012 – March 16-17, 2012 at North Greenville University


  1. Wish I could have been there with y'all! I know it was great!

  2. The thanks go to Donna and Jean for the brains and sweat (and maybe a little blood?) to put it together. The title is perfect. THis is exactly what this day was for me.

  3. Sounds like a day well worth while.
