This weekend, I had a mini writing retreat -- the house all to myself for a whole day. Even though I try to stick to a regular writing schedule and work on my writing for an hour or so every day, sometimes it's nice to have a longer block of time.
I took the opportunity to try out a different ending for my novel. Since it involved making small changes at several different places throughout the story, I really appreciated having the time to actually make the changes, rather than making notes on them.
Have you ever given yourself a "writing retreat"? Did you actually use the time for writing?
