RTW: Writing Paradise


Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.


This week’s topic:


Describe your dream writing retreat. Where would you go? Who and what would you bring?


At this moment, I’m on my chair and desk, with my laptop hooked up on a larger screen (because I like BIG screens lol), on a corner of the living room. I tried distancing myself and having my own office room, but this way I can still be with my daughter when she is watching a movie and with my hubby when he is playing video-games.

Not an ideal place to write, but it’s working so far.


First, my dream place to visit would not be my dream writing retreat.

This is my dream place to visit:

A little hard to sit down on the sand and write under the hot sun the Egyptian desert, don’t you think?

Alright, then I would choose this place as my writing retreat:


The perfect Paradise.

I confess I’m not a sand-and-beach kinda of gal, though I love the ocean. Instead of laying in the sand and sun-bathing, I’m the girl who never gets out of the water ;)

There are many resorts over the crystal-like ocean in Maldives.

Nice, uh?

And I could write on isolated places like this one:



I would bring my laptop and my notebooks and pencils (sometimes I just need to brainstorm on paper), chocolate and wine, and maybe some seafood at times (love seafood!), and I would invite my family to come with me on one condition: if I was allowed to have a few hours each day for myself, alone, to write ;)

I bet these resorts cost a fortune though, so I’m better off on my little corner lol


Your turn. Tell me about your perfect writing retreat? Or dream vacation?
