This picture is a little taste of paradise where I go a couple times a year to get away from home and to concentrate on my writing.
I’m heading south to Rancho Mirage for a week where I hope to crank out at least fifteen thousand words (hopefully more) over the next seven days.
Trust me, it isn’t all about writing. I have a good friend who lives nearby and we always meet for lunch or dinner.
Another good friend will come for two days and we’ll do a spa day and catch up on all the latest gossip. Maybe we’ll see a movie, too.
Though I love having a week completely to myself with an open schedule, this will be a writing retreat first and foremost. I’m really looking forward to it!
Do you blame me for wanting to go here? Gorgeous isn’t it?
Do you ever need to retreat from life? Do you have a favorite place to go when you do?
I’d love to hear about it.
Until next time, I wanted to share a funny I saw on Facebook this past week. It is so true, especially for writers. I hope you don’t have a night like this anytime soon.
