Yeah, we got one, too.
Writing Retreats: Staycation Edition
Today I went on a writing retreat and I did not leave my town.
How did I do it?
- I told my family I was going into writer mode and got a little crap for it but nothing that wasn’t done with love in the end.
- I did not check my email, texts, FB messages, mailbox, home phone (j/k, we don’t have one of those any more).
- I didn’t run the dishwasher.
I basically only did what I would do if I was on a retreat: I went for a run, drank coffee, read some inspiring literature and wrote. Then I went for a drive around my town, down roads I rarely travel, stopping at a store I never go to and a cafe I never eat at. (And got something I never order.)
The work was good today. And I didn’t have to wait for anything special to do it.
