My window looked out over the river, so I had the sound of rushing water as white noise during the day and to soothe me to sleep at night. This is where I did all of my writing, unless...
I was eating or socializing and sampling from one of these
Or attending a round-up meeting
Or enjoying the fresh crisp air outside
Or just taking pictures for fun.
Regardless of how often I played or ate instead of writing, I still got a lot done and came away motivated and re-energized. Once again, the retreat was a great success.
