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.

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.

      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.

    Oh, man, that does sound totally awesome. Hope you’re feeling refreshed and recharged and raring to write! :)

      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. :)

    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.
