[Writers] WRETREAT!!!! [august '08 - part 1]

I pretty much came up with the idea of getting away to do some hardcore writing last night. I've been wanting to go away for the past couple months. I've been annoying people about it for weeks. So much so, they were ready to kick me out already. It's too bad. All my plans to go here or there all fell through, and I'm left vacationless. Hence is why I never left. Did I use "hence" correctly there?

I have a more relevent question. Is it considered a "staycation" if I'm still in the same city? I'm going to pretend I'm in another country by watching BBC America. Monty Python is on. Good stuff. Bloody hilarious, actually. But I brought half of my DVD collection with me, so I'll have some familiar backgrond noise to keep me going in my writings. And this time, I'll be staying long enough to actually get some sleep. I tell you, when I get serious about writing, I don't think sleep is that important. Maybe I should take a nap now.

Since I'm on a retreat, I'll report a bit more frequently than I have been just because I can. I also brought my camera, so I may do some recording as well as document with pictures of what I've been doing while here. I'll leave out the parts with the college party with illegal narcotics, harlots, and booze galore.

You should! In fact, you should write a post on your blog to incite and excite others to do it too! I don't know if you have already, I've only been a fan of yours for... I dunno... 2-3 months or so?

Woot! Watcher
