  1. So glad you had a wonderful time. I can’t wait to hear what progress you made on your novel.

  2. Oooh, I love it. And, you deserve it!

  3. Memoir in progress says:

    I love writing retreats! Awesome progress

  4. Sounds wonderful (and quiet!).

    I’m envious. These days I’m doing a pretty steady one paragraph per day. But one paragraph a day will get there eventually.

  5. Gwen Stephens says:

    Sounds (and looks) like heaven.

    It looks like a wonderful chance to recenter and find inspiration for the writing. I hope we’ll see the results of the experience before too long!
