Getting Back on Track with a Retreat

It’s been much too long since I’ve posted on my blog or the newsletter, but I’m going to play catch-up today. No excuses, just life getting in the way.

I organized a small writer’s retreat at my cousin’s lake house in May. It was a wonderfully relaxing and productive time. The six of us did writing prompts first thing every morning. It’s one of those amazing things to see when six different authors come up with six different scenes for the prompt.

We enjoyed drinking coffee, having conversation, and working on the deck while we watched the goose families going about their daily routine.

Sunsets were breathtaking. I don’t think any of us saw a sunrise.

We visited a third-grade class I volunteer at and talked to the kids about writing.

We were on Lake Texoma, Oklahoma. The history of the lake is fascinating and will be a part of an anthology next year. Fingers crossed. The lake house, of course, will have any number of people visiting and finding out about the fairy chair in this fictional world. I can’t show a photo of that, wouldn’t want to have a bunch of irate fairies running around.

Remember this—sometimes all we need to get back on track is to get away from the routine things of life.

About the book, Journey of Honor, it’s moving along at a rapid clip now. I’m getting excited about the end, which I’ve known for years.

Until next time, Journey Onward,
