I am going on a three-day personal writer’s retreat to a cabin by a lake. Needless to say, I’m so excited.

I know it’s time to get away when:

      **even a small task overwhelms me

      **posts and viewing on Instagram, FB, and emails pile high and blur my vision

      **there is no time for reading or writing

My solution for this particular time is a retreat to unplug from the internet for a few days. Of course, I’ll be back. My retreat is in the woods by a lake with trails in a cabin…alone.

I’ll spend my time in research, writing, and reading. No devices that require Wi-Fi. Simplicity—only the essentials.

I’m hoping for great results:

      New ideas

      Revived physically


      Peace with God

      Prayerfully listen

Being unplugged is a gift I plan to enjoy…

When was the last time you unplugged?

    I need to do this too. It sounds amazing!

    Good word! Know exactly what you mean! I do the same at times, but I go to Ridgecrest alone for a week of writing and mountain trails!
