If you do a Google search on Viable Paradise, you’ll undoubtedly come across comments from previous attendees.
These comments read like praise of a cult. Fantastic instructors. Awesome staff. Great friends.
Believe me when I say this : Every Word Is True.
I have learned more in the three days I have been here than in my entire writing life up to this point. I’ve met some people with whom I hope I remain friends with for many years. I’ve spoken with authors whom I highly respect and found out I’m not the damned idiot I thought I was. I had someone seek me out today for my advice! And the staff here – well, these dude(ettes) are amazing. I feel like I’m at an all inclusive resort.
More later. I’ve got two stories to critique yet tonight, three short scenes to write, and a 5,000 word short story to get ready for Thursday. Did I mention I’m posting this at 11pm? Yeah, I’m having an awesome time 🙂
