I only had one regret, I didn't stay longer.
I spent some time reflecting.
Even though I went with four fellow writers, it was a productive and solitary experience.
Quick walks to stretch the legs near the lake were tiny rewards
of the weekend.
I managed to whip out twenty PiBoIdMo ideas and 7k on my new YA wip. Just the mere fact I didn't have to worry about cooking dinner or sweeping the floors was a blessing. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
There you have it. Are writer retreats necessary? No. Worthwhile? Yes. Well, I guess that would depend on what you put into them. ;)
Write on, folks~
