Treat Your Writing Self to a Writing Retreat!

This past week, I joined five former Novel Journey participants and one new writing friend at the St. Benedict Center for 3 days of writing rejuvenation. We all agreed that it is necessary, from time to time, to slip away from the real world for a few days and devote yourself wholeheartedly to your story characters and their problems.


When was the last time you treated yourself and your characters to some alone time? If it’s been awhile, you are long overdue! Don’t hesitate. Carve out that time today. Your characters will thank you, I promise!
