writer's retreat

i mentioned this briefly on here, but a few weeks ago i applied to go on an off-campus writing retreat with byui, and after much anticipation, i got accepted!
on wednesday evening, i left with a group of students and headed for a cabin in the woods.
basically, it was one of the best experiences of my life. i was surrounded by members of the english department and fellow creative writing students and we just wrote and wrote and wrote and...there's not much to say about the weekend other than that!
i was surrounded with this:
we had group meetings and some individual writing time here...
 and ate and wrote some more here:
i spent a solid 4.5 hours writing here one afternoon...
and this was my view pretty much the whole time...
&i slept here...

and it was awesome.
i've returned feeling uplifted and inspired and motivated. i am for sure applying next semester.


  1. YAY! I'm so happy it was so great! I wanna read some of what you wrote!

  2. Glad you had an awesome time Bran. It looks beautiful up there.

  3. Princess, I'm so proud of you for getting accepted and am so glad that you had such a glorious time!

  4. Your husband was such a slave driver whilst you were gone. He forced me to watch the store while he went and played a round of golf. haha


oh, hey!

i think you're smart, pretty, and entitled to your own opinions.

i'd love it if the feeling was mutual!
