Writing at the Chateau

Warm sun, fresh baguettes, strong cheese, the smell of roses and herbs--Provence is the lavender capital of the world--this is an idyllic setting for writing.

We had a glorious week.

Lots of images on the pages, powerful narratives and essays, aha moments. Camaraderie, connections, creativity. Projects launched.

Next summer join me in France's Loire Valley. Or in February come write with me in Thailand.

What. . . besides your luggage . . . do you carry with you when you travel? What do you leave home that you wish you had? What do you take home? Leave behind in the country you've visited?

I look forward to writing with you.

Provence sounds almost too wonderful to imagine. I'm so glad the passport snafu was fixed finally, and I can't wait to hear more about the actual week of writing.

A friend brought me some lavender to put next to my writing last week, so I was thinking about the workshop as I wrote too.

I like "What's in your luggage" as a writing prompt much better than "What's in your wallet?" of commercial fame. I'm using it today. K.
