There is not much to say. I’ve used nearly all my words on the novel revision I’m working on. This week I’ve holed up at home, gifting myself with an in-house writer’s retreat for one in hopes of finally getting this story sculpted, its rough edges smoothed and all the bubbles worked out so that it won’t explode in the firing.
So, in lieu of words, here is a visual recipe for an at-home writer’s retreat:

Oh Brenna, there is so much to love in the sparse, quiet beauty of this post. I feel like I was able to dip into retreat with you for a moment. What a gift.
“So much can blossom in rain and silence.” Yes.
Thanks so much–I am happy to share the quiet!
I just love this post! What a beautiful thing to give yourself, this retreat, and to notice all the magic around you. Also, I love that your cat goes on walks with you.
Thanks, Rebecca–it has been quite magical! And oh, this cat…..I love him so much.
We used to have a cat who liked to go on walks. I miss him very much. They’re rare treasures!
Feeling the expansiveness and peace. I’ll be on a stay at home writing retreat in less than a week! Taking notes! Thank you Brenna for your steady and inspiring sharing of your world.
Yay, Jennie! So glad you get to make your own writing magic next week! I’ll be thinking about you and wishing you a wonderful and productive experience.
Best of luck with your retreat. I’m in the midst of editing my own WIP, so I totally understand the need for peace and space. Hope you make a lot of progress 🙂
Thanks, Lisa, and happy editing!
Brenna – your words and images inspire me even in midst of a non-writing stretch of a parched soul. Depression dark and deep, trying to emerge like the peony in rain
Colleen, I’m sorry you’re having a rough time. That stinks. Here’s to a good, long soaking to restore those parched roots. Anything I can do for you?
Your writing is so beautiful, even when relegated to captions.
