I've been thinking for a long time that I'd love to scoop up a couple of my girlfriends and stage a writers' retreat somewhere here in the Pacific Northwest. The lush forests, icy water and the misty rain seem to whisper, "Come sit in a very cozy cabin, preferably overlooking some body of water, in yoga pants and wool socks in front of a roaring fire with a cup of tea or a glass of whiskey and write until you pass out." Extra points if the environment is ever so slightly spooky.
So the question is, when? Where? For how many days? I feel like it should definitely be while we're still in the cool, rainy spring, although let's be honest, here in Seattle and the surrounding area, cool and rainy lasts until July, so I've got some time to work this out. Till then, I'm just going to keep this picture handy.
Where's your dream retreat? What are you doing when you get there?
