Writer’s Retreat

So, I need some time away from the real world…I can’t afford to get away like I would like to…so I am going to make my apartment into a little mini-writer’s retreat!!! I am going to “pack my bags” and fill them with my doctoral and creative projects, and I am going to “check in” to my apartment as if it were a resort somewhere…but even better than a resort, because it has my favorite food already stocked, my kind of coffee at the ready, my own bed, and literally, all the comforts of home, including two cats who will much prefer me to do this at home than to leave their spoiled furry faces for a few days.
How is this different from any other weekend, you may be asking??? It’s all in the mind frame. I am not going to work on anything that is not doctoral or creative related…I may or may not have my phone on…I may or may not have my computer on…I will relax and write and work on projects. I will edit Arianna’s Honor and get her ready for the next step. I will finish Ten by Ten and get that ready for production. I will finish my current doctorate paper. I will use up pens and fill paper. It is all about me and my muse and pen-to-paper therapy…I really need this, as lately I seem to have misplaced my smile on a daily basis…but have no fear…I know where it is…it is already packed for my writer’s retreat.



  1. Sounds like a great little escape. 🙂

    • Sometimes we just need to get away from reality for a little bit, you know? Even if we get away to our own little space.
