Cabin Weekend Wrap-up

I just got back from a cabin in Wisconsin and boy are my arms tired!! Did it work? Am I any funnier?

This last weekend I went up to a cabin in Cambridge, WI, just outside of Madison, with my Robowriter’s group. I believe I wrote about that in the last blog so this should come as no surprise, but that’s why I haven’t written anything in the past couple of days. (I hope it wasn’t too painful for you – I know all two of you hang on my every word)

If you ever have the chance to spend the weekend in a cabin in Wisconsin, I highly recommend it. Our cabin was not so much a cabin as it was a giant lake house. We each had our own bedroom, and there were five of us. We got a lot of work done, looking for themes and connections between scenes and all of that writerly goodness, but the majority of the weekend was spend drinking, grilling and sitting around. It was magnificent.

We laughed. We cried. We had pillow fights. We played card games and shouted at one another. We went swimming to get over hangovers. When the time came, I wasn’t ready to leave.

But now I’m back, and back to the grind. Sigh.
