What happens when you toss 15 writers in a cabin for the weekend? You get one heck of a writer’s retreat.
The fearless (and very silent that weekend) leader of NCOhW (North Central Ohio Writers) plotted an amazing retreat for us to all get together, talk, and write.
For me, the best thing was being able to spend the time with such a great and diverse group of people. This Writing Tribe that I call friends, new and old. As a person (and writer, runner, parent, sibling, etc.) your tribe (or tribes) are key to your success. They keep you going strong. They encourage you. They help when you are down. Don’t neglect your tribe(s), they are worth it in the long run.
