Timing is wonderful! We are at the beginning of a 90-day writing challenge. I've logged just under 50k words in two weeks. The weather is perfect--first week of autumn. Cool, crisp mornings, moderate daytime temps. A huge deck, scenic views, terrific food!
Members work together to make and stuff retreat goody bags, so it's like a mini conference for four days. One might bring notebooks, another pens, books, magnets with our logo. Or delicious chocolates, hand sanitizers, Mardi Gras beads...anything goes.
Writing is such a solitary business, so gathering with close friends, sipping hot tea or coffee while having interactive discussions...just recharges this writer's emotional and creative batteries.
Here's hoping all of you enjoy your weekend.
P.S. Here's one of the books we are studying by our own Alfie.
