I just got back from a writing retreat with two awesome author friends–Cathy Maxwell and Leslie Grace–and my writing tank is all full again. It’s funny, because you’d think that going off to work almost nonstop for several days would be draining.
For me, though, it’s a different kind of work. It’s fun. I get to talk with other authors about what we’re all doing, and brainstorm. I get a tons of words (or this time edits) complete and off my plate. And I get to, oddly, relax and focus on just one thing for a little bit.
Even if you’re not a writer, take it from me… give yourself a retreat. Rent a VRBO somewhere pretty and quiet for a few days and either just relax or use the time to focus on a single thing that makes you happy.
You’ll thank me!
