Hi, all. This is my first post here in the forums. Forgive me if this is not the place! I'm about a month away from heading off to a residency at Yaddo and to give myself inspiration and push for the time away, I've been collecting impressions from other writers about different writers colonies to do a post on my blog all about them... I've gotten some great advice, and some blunt replies, and many inspiring ones.
My blog is novaren.wordpress.com, and I'll be putting up the post early next week, maybe in two parts, depending.
If any of you have been to a writers colony and wouldn't mind being included -- with your name or anonymously -- I'd love it.
As short or as long as you'd like it to be.
I've been asking two things really:
1) Short description of your time there:
2) Any advice for people about to head off to a colony?
You're welcome to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's just a personal project, but maybe it'll end up being helpful for other writers in the future...
