Storyteller's Journey

Willamette Writers House
Who, What, When, and
Where to Write

I'm one of those introverted writers who usually likes to write in solitude. However, when one of my good writer friends invited me to join her at the Willamette Writers House this Saturday, I jumped at the chance. The house appears to be very small, but in fact, it has six writing rooms, a kitchen, and even a library. Each writer rents their own room for the day, but usually the members of the group get together for lunch and a couple of breaks during the day. It sounds like a great way to accomplish some writing while also having a chance to meet with fellow writers. I've attached the link to the facility it you're interested in checking it out. There are also photos of each of the rooms; I'm hoping to rent either the Bloomsbury Room or the Narnia Room! http://www.willamettewriters.com/1/dreamhouse.php

Do you have a special place you enjoy writing at other than at home?

  1. That sounds so cool. I'd love to have a writing place all to myself. For now I'm just glad to have my own computer.

    1. I know what you mean, Sara. Sometimes I look around my work area and shudder, wishing for a more posh place. But after all, it's what we do in our work areas (and on our computers) that really matters. Have a great weekend!

  2. I never knew such an idea existed. Oh my! You almost have to try it out!!! lol. I hope it's fun and that the breaks with other writers are exciting.

    I do most of my writing in my bed. I wish I could say by the creek or on a mountain top, or even in a bustling coffee house, but my bed is my quiet safe zone where dreams come true.

    I have written at the dentist office though while waiting for my kiddies... ;) thought you might enjoy that one.

    1. I love it, Tanya. I actually did some writing in a dental office (years ago) on my lunch break as an employee. ^_^ Have a great weekend!

  3. Looks cozy. Have a wonderful time! I've never done a writing retreat before, but I write anywhere, anytime with my trusty laptop.

    1. I've been to a few SCBWI events, but never an actual writing retreat (meant to accomplish writing! ^_^). Thinking of you and the folks of Boston tonight, Theresa.
