I recently went on my first ever writer’s retreat. It was a simple three person unprogrammed trip away in a cottage surrounded by trees and the sound of birds.
It had been many years since I spent a night away on my own. With 2020 being what it is, there was a chance we wouldn’t be able to do what we wanted. However, things came together beautifully and I spent three days in the company of two other amazing Aussie authors.
By the end of the weekend I had written over 6000 words, had two uninterrupted nights sleep and discovered how relaxed I can be around like-minded and talented human beings.
It’s been an eye opening adventure on many fronts, and I hope to be able to do such retreats often in the future.
