I met my dear friend Jamie Martin ten years ago, when we both lived in the DC area. We have since moved a combined total of five times, added five children to our families, started four blogs, and published two books.
We’ve seen each other twice in the last seven years.
A few weeks ago, I emailed her a spur-of-the-moment idea: Let’s meet up somewhere for a writing retreat. We could write in the mornings and afternoons and read each other’s work in the evenings. And since I’m dreaming, let’s make the place Prince Edward Island (home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, whose books and journals we’ve pored over).
At the end of 2011 or beginning of 2012, we’re going to make it happen. How amazing is that?
Wonderful! PEI is beautiful. Love that you’re doing that.

Yay! That’s wonderful, Caroline! 🙂

That would be lovely. I hope you really do go there. Sounds like a wonderful place for writing and dreaming.
And since I finally got around to reading ANNE OF GREEN GABLES this month, I can understand perfectly why you’d be drawn to Prince Edward Island. Cool!
This brought a huge smile to me, wasn’t expecting to see my face here!

Oh my goodness, that is such a fabulous idea! Sounds like so much fun! I’m jealous. = )
Caroline Starr Rose says
Ms. Jamie, I meant to tell you I was posting about this. Guess I never got around to it!
Caroline, love the name. 😉

You will love PEI. Sigh. Now I want a writing retreat too!
OMG!!! I totally love this! Way to go! You are my kind of succulent wild women!
Sonia Gensler says
Oh, Caroline! I am so happy for you! (And, I must confess, ENVIOUS.)
