Writer's Retreat for One...
After the release of my boxed set, I needed to refill the creative well.

I'm an extreme introvert, and when the world went into lockdown in 2020, I now had three other people in the house with me at all times. I haven't been alone in my home for more than four hours in over two years.
I love my family, but I needed to do something just for me--be by myself and create. I wanted to work on my next #EnchantedRockImmortals novella and take a few workshops in a location where I could concentrate.
Check. The. Boxes.
I had a great three days at a reasonably priced hotel, complete with microwave, fridge, and what I dubbed 'the orgy tub.'
The orgy tub. Six adults could easily fit.
Why have a tub this large? Is the whole family bathing at the same time? If so, eww. Filling the whole thing for a bath would waste a lot of water, so I showered only.
But enough about the orgy tub. Let's look at the view from my window:
The view from my room through the romantic filter of the sun shining on the glass.
Note the highway. The dumpster. The parking lot. I missed capturing a pic of the occasional plane flying by (complete with noise)--the hotel is near the airport. Breathtaking.
For me, the vista from my window was the most glorious sight ever, because I viewed the scenery BY MYSELF.
I wrote. I rested. I restored my love of learning and writing without a filter. I remembered what it felt like to work without anyone else around.
Best investment ever. I will do this again.
I didn't realize what street the hotel officially was on until I was leaving the area (I came in from a different direction.)
