I’m at a writer’s retreat north of San Francisco, outside the tiny town of Gualala. The schedule is simple, and with one main focus — getting lots of writing done. Yesterday I mixed in a run on the bluff above the beach. Today I’ve been splitting firewood on my breaks. Meals and evenings are spent talking about elements of writing craft — subtext was the topic at lunch — and life. I’ve known the five other writers here for almost 20 years. There is definitely something to be said for community.Wishing you community of your own, and productive writing sessions mixed with lots of life fully lived.
Greetings from the CA Coast
