Listen here: Episode 38: Writing Retreat
Podcast: Creating your own writing retreat
Finding time to write is difficult. Kids, spouses, pets, jobs and chores can all get in the way of a healthy writing routine. So what’s a writer to do? One option is writing retreats. I have looked dreamily at descriptions of various retreats, but have never applied or signed up to go on any of them. I always have felt that it was difficult to leave my family for long stretches, or the amount required to go was prohibitive. This year I tried something different. We are now leasing a cabin in the mountains, and I planned a writing retreat for a 3-day trip with Kristin Swenson, my podcasting partner. We discuss how we thought it would go, how it actually went, and what we learned and accomplished during our time away on our podcast, The Writer’s Story.
