Summer Writing Retreats and Workshops

Spring has finally arrived and with it comes the anticipation of those wonderful long sunny days of summer.  Writing outside is one of my favorite summer activities.  I’m inspired by the fresh smell of the wind, the sun on my face and the extra hours of daylight.

Thinking about taking a writing vacation this summer?  Somewhere where you can do nothing but write?

Here are a few great resources:

Getting back on the horse, so to speak

Arts Blogs - Blog Top Sites


Bookmark and Share

Okay, so first of all let me say that I know in order to have a successful blog (by that I mean a blog that has regular followers and readers), one must consistently post interesting content.  With so much competition these days, it takes a significant effort to create a memorable online blog presence.

I failed miserably during this past month. 

Yes, I have reasons, which to some might better be referred to as excuses:

  • out-of-town on vacation for 12 days
  • company visiting for 8 days
  • oppressive, humid heat
  • unstructured schedule
  • 3rd and final edit of my suspense novel

Yes, you read that last one right.  Working with my content editor, Marguerite, I finished the final edit of my suspense novel manuscript and it’s now being sent to lines…one step closer to publication.

But it’s definitely time to get back up on the blogging horse again.

I’d love to hear from my readers as to how the summer months, vacations, company from out-of-town and all of life’s other little interruptions factor into their writing/blogging.
