Infinite Weekend 2018

As a writer, sometimes the best thing to do is get away. This weekend, I am at the Infinite Weekend Writer Retreat at a cabin in the mountains of Utah. I am surrounded by 30 of my writerly friends who are all at various stagings of writing their short stories or novels spanning various genres, mystery, horror, and fantasy.

What is the retreat all about? Basically it is hitting some writing goals, whether that be actual new words on a page, pre-writing for NaNoWriMo, revising, or editing. We all take turns at preparing and cleaning up a meal. There are a couple of short educational presentations each day. There is plenty of time to hike, sleep, explore, or just think. And at night there are games or movies to rest the brain. It’s also a time to make new friends and see old ones again.

This is my third year at the Infinite Retreat, a testimony to how great this weekend it. Getting a retreat is something every writer should take time for. They are amazing.
