I was lucky enough to be an invited speaker to Eat Write Retreat this year and my topic was about finding your really vision for your blog. I think I caused some pain.. This is not an easy exercise to do but the group was enthusiastic and supportive and I think they benefited from the session. Here is one attendees reaction: One Simple Thing That Is Changing my Life. If you are reading this and you went to EWR and attended my session, I hope you will post your impressions here.

Some photos by the superbly talented Daphne Domingo.. MANY THANKS:

And Betty Ann Quirino was kind enough to send these photos and a short excerpt for your listening pleasure:

  1. Very nice video excerpt! I like this part where you are quite emphatic about being “specific” with our writing goals. As always, I re-learned something again, no matter show brief the video. You looked great in it, Monica!

  2. Beautiful!!!
    You inspire me and sooo many other…

  3. I’m so happy that I had the honor to meet you in person. Your website is fabulous but it could never do justice to you as a person. Thanks so much for linking to my post, Monica!!

    1. I loved your post. I hope others who went to EWR12 will add their posts here as well 🙂
