Dream With Me

 I have been craving a writing get-a-way! Some time away from my regular daily responsibilities to be completely selfish and do nothing but write!

I'm drooling just thinking about it!

But I can't make up my mind. Would I prefer a quiet cozy cabin in the mountains or do I want the waves lapping against the sandy shore to be my background music?

Heck, at this point, I'll reserve a room at the Motel 6 near the freeway just to have some uninterrupted writing time.

What about you? If you could go anywhere and money wasn't an issue...where would you want to go to write your heart out?


  1. I'm with you!

    I either want one of those beach houses with thatched roofs on the water, where you have to walk across a bridge to get to the land. I also want it completely stocked so I don't have to go to the mainland unless I want to, which I won't. LOL

    Or I want a cabin the woods--in Fall (so I can take walks to a lake) would be super nice. And it is completely stocked so I don't have to drive into town. :)

  2. I took a trip to Ireland last summer and my friends and I climbed to an area right on the ocean we probably weren't allowed to go...but it was so secluded. The most Eastern point of Europe. I would love to go back there and write.

  3. I'll take the cabin! I would love to vacation at the beach, but for writing, it's all about a cozy space. I would even take a few days at the little bed and breakfast in our town. This way, I could pop in and see my family whenever I wanted, but then I'd disappear back to my room to write.

  4. Last spring, Katie G. and I took a writing retreat to Galena, IL.

    I know, it doesn't sound as romantic as a beach house or cabin in the northwoods, but to this history geek's heart, it was PERFECT. A presidential home to tour, an amazing county historical museum, and nearly every house in the town is on the National Historic Register. I wrote 13K words that weekend and got to tour museums till my little heart overflowed. :) I'd so do that trip again!

  5. I love Gettysburg, PA. I've watched many sunsets from Little Round Top, and found mountains of inspiration there.

    I would have to say Gettysburg...or maybe a beach somewhere. I love the sound of the surf.

  6. Oh man, that is a tough choice! But since snow is in the forecast, that beach is sounding pretty good right now. :)

  7. Loree, how I'd love to sit on Little Round Top with you, travel back in time, and write. As long as it was a warm, dry day and we had plenty of munchies, I'd be happy.

    I'm a real homebody and have written my stories in my cozy home office. However, I think I'd be content to write at a cabin up in the Sierras in the summer when the wildflowers are in full bloom, one overlooking an Alpine lake.


I'd love to hear your thoughts too!
