Creative Retreat

Creative Retreat


On the weekend I was so blessed to be able to attend a writing retreat down south.

I left work on Friday on time and arrived home to finish packing for the adventure.

I had been looking forward to this retreat for a while and excitement was building.

My lovely friend picked me up and the drive there was such a great time to catch up.

The weekend was a great opportunity to focus on the direction of my writing.

The place where we stayed was near the beach and it had a lovely log fire in the lounge room, which was nice as the weather was stormy.

I was so encouraged by the other women that were there and hearing their stories really moved me.

I feel that I have a new direction in how I want to write.

I am really grateful for the opportunity and the time away.

I am thinking now that it is something that I would like to do maybe every few months. Just have that time away where I can just focus on being creative.

When I am home I can become easily distracted in those little moments of –

  • I might just go through some papers
  • I might vacuum
  • I might watch a bit of TV
  • The list could go on…

Having the space to create is really important to me.

I am excited to see what happens in the next few months.

Will share more soon.
