Dark Angels and a Highland retreat? What’s that all about? Has she been dabbling in black magic?
Actually no, Dark Angels is the name of the Creative Writing for Business course I went on last week. Moniack Mhor was the venue - a writing retreat near Beauly, in the Scottish Highlands. As a burgeoning business writer and keen blogger I wanted to bring more energy to my writing.
It's an experience I would recommend for anyone wanting to engage with people through writing. I was astounded at how my language was dominated by bureaucratic words. In my head I was communicating in a human language, but somewhere between my brain and the tips of my fingers my thoughts were converted back into management speak. It was like stretching an elastic band......then letting go!
