Had a brilliant time at Caerleon, as normal, and I highly recommend the event to anyone who is serious about becoming a writer. I love the informal atmosphere. Here are some pictures of me and my friends:

The most important thing I learnt was to be more confident and create a more confident / competent persona. Apparently, I have to tell myself I am brilliant and eventually I might believe it. I think I need to work on this a bit more. Lynne has sent me a book to help me - Be Your Own Life Coach by Fiona Harrold. I'll let you know if it helps.
I plan to write up some of my notes for anyone who is interested and will post them up over the next few weeks.
Went straight from Caerleon, camping in North Devon and that was fun too. We had fairly good weather and walked from Lynton to the Valley of the Rocks. There were some spectacular views. Here are some pictures:
