A Writer’s Vacation

So this past week I took a vacation. An actual, honest-to-goodness vacation that was not a writers’ conference. I saw the ocean, scrunched my toes in the sand, ate ice cream on a daily basis, and spent quality time with two of my writer-besties, Miranda Liasson and Sandra Owens.

We headed to the low country of South Carolina. You can tell by the picture that we were in the tidal marsh. We could see this from the back porch of the house we stayed in! What a view, and what a way to unwind. There is something magical about water. Sandra says that water is ‘her peace.’ And I can understand that.

So we spent time by the beach, and we walked along the sand several times as well as traveled the island on bike and golf cart. And we had some amazing food there too.

And when you get writers together, we’re going to talk books – whether it is what we are reading or have read that is ‘really good’, or talk about our own stories to see if we’re heading in the right direction. Brainstorming, synopsis writing, beta reads got tucked into the trip as well.

And of course we’re there to support each other too. All in all, it was an amazing adventure.

I got home today and what did I do first? Write about it, of course!!

  1. What fun. Sometimes you need an escape from life and to take time for yourself. What better than to spend it with like minded friends. Iā€™m sure you had a great time. You, Miranda and Diane had a ball when we took a day away from conference to spend it at Coronado Beach. Great memories.
