Creative discoveries from my time in the woods + some exciting announcements.
Wow, that cube room!! So cool even without the history behind it, but extra cool because of that storied past... pun intended :)
You've really inspired me with this edition, Amber -- from the community aspect being key to the retreat, as well as the four days of quiet decompression you needed before you could jump in to writing fully. I work a demanding, full-time day job, and I get SO frustrated about how "unproductive" I am with my own fiction writing & personal passions outside of work -- but is it any wonder, really, that my brain can't make a quick transition in the evenings, after I've already burned all my fuel?? A pretty "duh" light bulb moment, but one I apparently needed today..... Thank you <3
I love writer’s gestation! What a great way to frame it.
Oregon is the very best place for writers! You should move here ❤️❤️❤️
Oregon sounds idyllic. I wanna go there NOW!
Glad that you had the ability and time to recharge!
Welcome back! I did miss you. And you helped me feel a lot better about my own writing
Love this so much for your writing trio. Blissful and inspiring.
Sounds like you had a lot of benefit to taking the time off. Glad to have you back and will hopefully be able to participate in some of the new stuff.
I love this, even re-reading it brings oooooosh.
Thank you for the reframing of writer's block! I'm not a writer but a crafter. I have a few things I want to work on but I have not had the inspiration or motivation lately. Because it needs gestation.
What a beautiful place Soapstone is!
Hiii- I think I put this in the wrong space before: missed you much, you’re amazing company here! And wanted to thank you for the beautiful view of treasured advice as a gift - ‘cuz it sure as hell IS! 🎁 And the actual beautiful views - even that chin...thing..🤣❤️
Wow! What an amazing space. Thank you for sharing, Amber, and for the reminder of the deep importance of community within the solitary space writing can be. I will be writing in Oregon this fall and winter and just might need to check out this marvelous place. ❤️
