Writing Roundup: April 2015

:: Last month I was fretting because I published very little. This month I averaged two pieces per week, which frankly made my head spin, especially since I spent one of those weeks on a writing retreat at a place with dodgy internet.

Why Retreat?

:: This past week, I retreated up to an artist’s center in the N.C. mountains to get some writing done. This is a practice my mother refers to as a “taking a vacation.”
