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…
