Writer Retreat aka seeing Raven #TuesdayThoughts with Doris (@mamaD8)

Hello, lovely peeps, Doris, writing this from my comfy armchair at the lovely Raven McAllan’s in Scotland.

Yep, I’m here for the week, to recharge my batteries, and to spend time with one of my most favorite people in the whole wide world. 🙂


We all need to unwind and relax, and what better way to do it than with another author. We haven’t actually managed to get a lot of writing done, yet. Too busy chatting and putting the world to rights, but we’ve hashed out plot points, buffed up one synopsis, and generally speaking, had fun.

Now, I’ve never been to an actual writer’s retreat, but I imagine it’s something like this. Authors getting together, chatting plots, and bouncing ideas off each other while encouraging each other to write.

Naturally, copious amounts of caffeine, and wine, and in our case G&T’s will be consumed. It all aids the creative process, right?

So, what I’m saying here, nothing beats getting together with other authors and chewing the fat. No one understands you like another writer, so, if you get the chance to meet up with others in this crazy profession we’ve chosen, jump to it.

Now excuse me, I have some writing to do. That Raven cracks a  mean whip. 😉

Stay naughty, folks,

D xxx
