View from my window

imageI don’t usually like to write that I am visiting somewhere, or on a trip. I feel it tips off people that I am not home, and that isn’t a good thing. But I am so excited about this trip, and I have someone watching the house (plus three attack cats!) so here goes.

I’m at a writing retreat at Emerald Isle. I don’t know how much writing I’ll get done, what with the beach to walk on and the stunning view from my bedroom window. But I will try to stay on courses.

There are eight women here, (seven writers and one reader) and we all have projects. I hope to edit my WIP and whip it into shape to submit.  If I need a change of pace, I can work on the genealogy project I’ve been promising my kids to write for forever. And, I do have a Sunday School lesson to prepare for the Sunday I get back–which is also the Sunday the hour hand skips forward.

I had some trouble signing on the the Internet here, but a little prayer and a threat t0 throw my iPad over the balcony into the swimming pool convinced it to behave. My iPad doesn’t adjust well to new surroundings. Sorta like me, but I think this is going to be a good week, and a productive one. Nothing like being around other writers to get your creative juices flowing!

Above is the view from the bedroom window. And yes, I can walk right out onto the deck. If it weren’t so cold, I’d have my coffee there in the morning, but we’ll see what the week brings…hopefully warmer weather!

The writing life has its ups and downs, but this is one of the ups for certain.
