In retreat


For my birthday treat, I'm getting a week in solitary confinement :-)

Well, not quite solitary (Mr Ashbless is allowed conjugal visits, at his own risk). But, a rented apartment far far from home. No dogs, no housework, no visitors, no shopping, and almost no Internet. If I can't get this novel nailed down in that time, there's something wrong with me.

I'll be back on the 9th December, assuming it's not actually possible to die from writing sex scenes.

And the visits...

Many happy returns. Solitary confinement sounds heavenly to someone who is currently trying to wrestle a very alpha hero into a set of leather bondage cuffs amid a house full of stomping, whistling, tea-swilling tradesmen!

Happy Birthday! Boy am I envious. Solitary confinement sounds like heaven right now.

Happy birthday, and have a wonderful time! (I agree with Madelynne.)

Love the picture, too! :)

Thank you everyone! Time and space are such luxuries for writers, aren't they? If I had a fairy wand, I'd grant you all a free week.

Mine has started well - 3K today. Not that I'm going to be able to keep that up, but it makes me feel good right now :-)

Now, bye-bye Internet...
