How to Thrive on the Writer's Road


Speaking of emotions...

Writing retreats seem to be chock-full of them. I'm on emotional (and intellectual) overload after an amazing weekend making targeted changes to two different book manuscripts. Coming back to the real world seems particularly difficult...such a let-down after the non-stop stimulation of the "Big Sur of the Rockies" weekend. It seems that I spent every moment either writing, talking about writing, brainstorming writing ideas, reading a great book for writing inspiration, or hob-nobbing with other writings about--you guessed it--writing.

Luckily, home is the place to be when I'm coming off a writing-retreat high. I set the household mood dial to the "mellow/recovery" zone and started off the reentry process with an hour nap.

I think that all writing conferences and retreats should come with re-entry instructions, to remind us what life's like in the real world. :) Or maybe we have to trust those around us to help us rediscover our footing!
