RTW: The Writing Retreat

Road Trip Wednesday is a blog carnival, where YA Highway’s contributors and readers post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s take on the topic.

This week’s prompt was: Describe your dream writing retreat. Where would you go? Who and what would you bring?

Here’s what I’m thinking: I wouldn’t want to visit a city lest I be tempted by culture and delicious food to give up writing and tour the place. I wouldn’t want to visit the remote woodlands of this or any other country because, hello, girls always get killed when they’re all alone in the middle of nowhere. Still, I don’t think shutting myself up in an ugly, boring (yet moderately populated) place would be my ideal writing retreat, either.

So I’d pick a gorgeous land that would inspire writing but could also keep me away from civilization if the temptation to sightsee happened to sink its talons into me. My pick: the Irish countryside.

Oh, and where should this retreat take place? Why, in a castle of course. (You said dream, didn’t you?)

You’re all welcome to join. I have a feeling there’d be plenty of room. Well be going when the airs crisp so we could write outside or at the top of a cliff, bundled in wool sweaters with the wind beating our hair against our faces.

Where would you go on your dream writing retreat? (Or, on your dream retreat of any kind?)
