Jump-Start Your Book – Writers Retreat

Writers Retreat- Jump-Start Your Book.

Often it helps to get away from your own desk, work, and distractions and focus on getting a project underway.  Many writers long to get away to write, this retreat offers both the getaway and personal coaching for three intensive days. I offer a cabin in the heart of a designated Cultural District within walking distance of great restaurants and lively bars.  You will enjoy a fully equipped, private guest cabin with off-street parking less than a mile from downtown Nevada City, CA. The retreat comprises of three days of total focus on you and your project.  We will get you organized, motivated and started on the road to success.  (Lunch and dinner are not included, you will thank me later.)

Retreat Schedule

9:00 to 12:00 PM  Intensive.  We spend three mornings focused on your book idea collaborating on themes, plots, activities, solutions for writer’s block and even writing up a majority of the copy for the book. 2:00 to 5:00 PM  Work on your project independently.   Write in the privacy of your own retreat house or explore the downtown and write in one of the many charming cafes.   Or take a break and spend the afternoon on the banks of the Yuba River, one of the many surrounding lakes or hike one of a dozen well-maintained trails, all within minutes of your guest house. 6:00 PM  Review.   We meet again and review your afternoon work and set up goals and a plan for the next day. 7:00 PM  Dinner.  With both Nevada City and Grass Valley close, your dinner options are downright overwhelming.

Nevada City, CA – A California Cultural DistrictGVNC Cultural District

Depending on the time of year, there are usually a wealth of festivals, theater productions, dance productions, live music venues and galleries open for your enjoyment.  Grass Valley-Nevada City is a California Cultural District for a reason.  I almost hesitate to tell you everything you can do because you’re here to start your book. Retreats are typically open during the week, Tuesday – Thursday. This is a smoke-free environment, but to make up for that, we have a friendly dog. Oh, and this is not an AirB&B, I only allow friends and perhaps you to stay in the Retreat House. contact me to schedule your personal Jump-Start retreat!
