November is National Novel Writing month, and it's also my birthday month! Every November, I try to schedule a personal writing retreat away from all the hub-bub and daily distractions of my busy life. This year, I chose to return to one of my favorite B&Bs on Vashon Island, WA vashongardencottages.com/intro.html. The hostess Jacqueline, creates such a serene space, and I was able to delve into my imagination while gazing out at tangerine & crimson leaves, and watching the horses graze.
After much discipline and self-care (yoga, soaking, sleeping in), I had 3/4 of the third Hoagie & Katie book written, and it was time to kick up my feet and reward myself!
And have pie, of course!
