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.
