writing retreat

i’d heard of these things where a bunch of writers travel to a specific locale and do nothing* but write. i’m not entirely sure how i got (a) the label “writer” and (b) an invite to rockport, MA, but i did and i was and i accepted both.

after a weekend of words, i find myself only left with these:


and here are these:

rockport, MA
a little brainstorming. a little handwriting, a little afternoon sunshine.
walking for inspiration
my shadow is going places. hopefully the rest of me will too.
leaving my mark.
alternate views
game night
back to work
one last trip to the beach. note, it’s a little difficult to form your own ideas when another author’s words run on repeat in your head: “the sky and the sand and the sea and Corr.”

the end.

*nothing but eat, drink, listen to music, talk, play games, cook, brainstorm, sleep and write.

    1. great, now it’s in my head again! although that TSR quote is better than the ACE OF BASE song that’s on repeat in my head. thank you for that, btw.

    1. some late night chit chatting and early morning rising left me not so much recharged, but the weekend as a whole was refreshing and wonderful, yes. :)

    1. i wish i could have had another full day of writing, but the day and a half i did have was helpful. it got my mind churning!

  1. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different page
    and thought I may as well check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you.
    Look forward to checking out your web page for a second time.
