Spring 2015 Writing Retreat

Believe it or not, I held off writing this blog because I had writer’s block. I wanted to talk about how much fun I had, how productive we all were, how despite some trials we all got along great. I wanted to discuss how I didn’t use my phone for the entire weekend (Bucket List Goal!). I wanted to describe the new writing process I learned, and how I couldn’t wait to put it to practice.

Yet, every time I sat down to write this blog, I had serious writer’s block. Just the absolute worst. Nothing I was going to say was going to do justice to having to eat my dinner with a dog toy. Nothing I could write was going to eloquently put into words the experience of waking up to a full house of fellow writers, and cooking breakfast together. There was no amount of writing that would describe the onslaught of laughter that arose during our story telling game, the recordings still sitting unplayed on my phone.

It is a shock to me how easy it is to be overwhelmed by the busyness of life, that something this simple evades me. Here we are, though, a few weeks away to the next Fall Writing Retreat – and I cannot wait! Hopefully this time it doesn’t take me a year to write about it…

About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin
