Writing

Escape! (I mean writer’s retreat)

2014_Spring_Retreat_LargeI’ve been having the craziest month and it is my own fault. I probably shouldn’t have planned to travel for spring break, negotiate financial aid with colleges, plan a major church event and publish two titles in one month. My bad.

I did it all (not without some wear and tear) and I am here now, with four wonderful writing friends, loads of delicious food, chocolate and wine. In fact, I’m enjoying a nice Cabernet/Shiraz blend as I’m writing this.

I do have a serious goal for the weekend: to brainstorm new stories. I can write in short sessions, which is what I can mostly manage at home, but the extra time on retreat is helpful for characterization and plotting.

What is everyone else doing this weekend?

It is finally time to plant the cool season crops in the garden. Potatos, peas, carrots, parsnips and lettucy-things! And pick some more sorrel and chicory!

Congrats! That’s a lot to get done.

I’m heading up to Napa for my birthday (ok, tech my birthday was a couple weeks ago, but my BFF has been traveling for work and this was the first weekend we could secure). Going to do a little wine tasting, have dinner at the fabulous Bistro Jeanty, and hand out in Calistoga with my best friends.
