Luck, the Irish, and Writing Toward Your Dreams

This entry is part 8 of 8 in the series Writing in Ireland

It’s St. Patrick’s Day. Do you feel lucky?

Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry, "Do you feel lucky, punk?"
No, not in a Dirty Harry sort of way. More of a, Are you ready to achieve your dreams? kind of way.

Let’s listen to some Irish talk about dreams.

In a world sadly lacking in fairy godmothers, dreams take work. But there’s a lot we can do to achieve our dreams, and I’m inviting you to join me to achieve them.

Many of my readers here are also writers, and it’s you I’m addressing right now. (The rest of you are welcome to stay for the pretty pictures!)

I’ve mentioned before that I’ll be teaching a writing retreat/workshop in Ireland this August, but today I’m pleased to announce that it just got better.

How better? Better as in, a smaller and more intimate group, with more personal instruction time, and for a lower cost.

Oh, and it’s tax-deductible.

You can find more details at Ireland Writer Tours, but here are the highlights:

  • small group discussions on craft, marketing, queries, and other writing/publishing topics
  • a group leader with both traditional and self-publishing credits
  • a group leader with both fiction and non-fiction success
  • a killer setting–seriously, if you can walk through these places and not feel inspired, check your pulse
    • ruins of a 14th century abbey, the best-preserved in Ireland
    • a 12th century castle
    • an ancient druidic stone circle
    • ruins of a 7th century abbey
    • an enchanted (and enchanting) forest with a ghost-storied cave
    • the Burren and a paleolithic tomb
    • the Cliffs of Moher (aka the Cliffs of Insanity, for you Princess Bride fans)
    • dinner in a 15th century haunted castle
    • Inis Mór, the direct inspiration for a key setting in The Songweaver’s Vow
    • writing sessions at a lodge on the largest lake in Ireland

And with just six participants, we can customize our curriculum to exactly what you want and need in your writing journey.

As the Cranberries sang above, the Irish know a lot about dreams.

I want more, impossible to ignore
Impossible to ignore
And they’ll come true
Impossible not to do
Impossible not to do

Join me in August, and let’s chase our dreams together. You can find more info at Ireland Writer Tours.
