SAE Writing Weekend

Considering I was just watching America's Next Top Model and it was delaying my writing, the fact that my kindle just shut down from a low battery may be a good thing. My posts have been delayed enough!

Hello Everyone! I hear many of you missed me. It is definitely nice to be missed.

I just got back from a writing weekend this past weekend. It was AMAZING. I can't stop using that word to describe it. A lot of the time wasn't used for writing but also gaining inspiration and relaxing. The trip even inspired me to do so much more than expected. For example, I have someone who takes care of my management now. Also a creative hour once a week, to keep the juices flowing. And an idea for making a writing retreat!

Yes, a writing retreat. I feel like not many writers have opportunities to take themselves away from obligations and just be creative. During my time at the writing weekend, I didn't use one writing prompt. I just thought and blocked out my day job, entrepreneurial tasks, and what everyone needed from me. But what I needed from me was a beginning to a third novel. And I got it! The start wasn't too long, but it was a start. All weekend I kept saying, "Did you accomplish more than if you were at home?" If the answer was yes, I was happy.

Take time out for yourself as the holidays come closer and closer. You deserve and your mind deserves time to reflect and create.
