I had a very nice writing retreat this weekend. I was able to figure out the next Nocturne, work up a rough synopsis, plus write nearly 2000 words on the actual book.
I stayed in an converted railroad car.
It was very rustic, very beautiful, and I loved it there. My room mate and I made a 'no speaking ' rule for designated writing times, which totally worked for me. At one point Saturday I took a walk around the place and visited the animals. There were all kinds - horses, goats, a pig, a sheep, a calf, a turkey, rabbit, pigeon, and geese. There were rolling hills and trees and walking paths. I could have stayed there longer.
In the woods, I discovered a chapel. It must be a popular place for weddings - it's called Chapel in the Woods.
The morning I left, it was 32 degrees. I walked outside in the foggy morning and startled a buck and two does in the meadow. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera ready.
I did get a shot of this guy though. He's one bird that doesn't have to worry about Thanksgiving.
