Writing Retreat of Dreams

     This week's Road Trip Wednesday prompt:

Describe your dream writing retreat. Where would you go? Who and what would you bring?

     Aaahhh, I'm already there in my mind. My writing retreat would look something like this:

(I was here just over a month ago)

     Warm, white sandy beaches, a cloudless sky, clear turquoise water sparkling in the sun, and a slight breeze blowing across my face. I don't even care what part of the world it would be, as long as it's quiet. Not a lot of tourists. I wouldn't bring anyone (sorry fam-damily but I can't get any writing done with you around). I would just bring my iPad to write on, my earphones (plugged into my iPad) to listen to music, and lots and lots of water. Oh and I'd probably need sunscreen.
     Please, can I go there now?


  1. Ooh, beautiful. I would go away to a little log cabin up in the mountains. I wouldn't bring anyone either. I'd get a lot of writing done with no distractions.

  2. Beautiful picture! The snow scene of your surrounding blog is more what I'm experiencing now, though. I am writing, though. So I guess I can't complain.

  3. Very, very pretty! I'd get no work done, though lol :)

  4. Looks nice and relaxing... I can't imagine you'd get anything done! :)

    I really would like to get an iPad, but I only envision writing notes on it, not actually drafting novels. I didn't think it would be good for that kind of prolonged writing use--but maybe I'm wrong?

  5. I am SOoooo with you. Though, I don't know how much actual WRITING I would get done.
    Exercise swimming?
    Maybe when I got home.
    And all my stories would take place on a beach.
