This Week’s Writing Prompt

Sometimes the best way to write is to get away from it all. Even though I have been successful at maintaining my writing routine for many weeks now, I decided it was time for a change of pace and scenery.

In anticipation of the Sandhill Writers Retreat at Saint Leo University near Tampa last weekend, I drove there a day early and dedicated the extra time to write. I set up shop at a nearby Hampton Inn and enjoyed a beautiful view of an adjacent cattle ranch, rolling green hills, and grazing animals, just what my creativity needed to breathe deep and exhale the prose of my life. Yes, perfect serenity.

The words flowed, and the next day, I learned even more about writing well at the conference. I came back home not only with a sense of accomplishment for all I’d written but also a sense of renewal and refreshment. This weekend retreat was good for my soul.

What about you? Have you ever gotten away from daily life for a spell?

  • What was the purpose?
  • Where did you go?
  • What did you do?
  • What was it like?
  • Did you learn something new about yourself?

Share the results of your retreat and how you felt when you returned home.

If you haven’t gone on such a retreat but wish you could, write about that, using the previous questions as prompts.

All posts in response to our writing prompts in May will be entered into our drawing to win a free online coaching video—that’s a $20 value!  Go for it!
