Return from Residency Life

Overlooking the Writers in the Heartland grounds

 What could be better than a room of your own for 7 days, spending time writing uninterrupted?

What could be better than sharing that experience with 3 other women who take writing as seriously as you do?

How about doing that and having the option of spa treatments? I know it sounds to good to be true but that's just what I have been doing over the past week.

The Heartland Writers, Oubria, Joanne, Karen and me

It's amazing to me how much work I got done, how much I bonded with the others and just how hard it has been to adjust back to real life. The great thing is that my husband is supportive, the kids behaved themselves and they all were very happy to see me. I did realize that I had been way overdue and plan on applying for more residency opportunities and more often. I have to thank my dearest Juliet again for telling me about this residency!(I owe you one)
