May 18th through 20th was Canada's Victoria Day Long Weekend, the first long weekend of the summer season. (Okay, I know it isn't officially summer until the solstice, but in our climate you have to seize any opportunity to believe summer is here!)

AlphaSmart and my Starbucks.
The location was beautiful. The atmosphere was relaxing. And, I managed to outline what I hope will be a lovely little short story for my Morning Lake series.
This is the first time I've really given myself a writing retreat. I feel like I was able to focus and enjoy my new story. Have you tried it?
