Typical Schedule and Activities

Most days will consist of 3 components.

Peaceful Mud Lake, a 25-minute walk from my house.




(1) Private time to enjoy the mountain setting for personal relaxation/writing/reflection.






A fun ride on Nederland’s unique Carousel of Happiness.




(2) Group activities. These will include such things as hiking (easy trail), scenic drives, and directed writing exercises. And a ride on the Carousel of Happiness … whose animals were carved here in my house.




Please do be advised there are 2 cats on the premises, and they like to participate in the group discussions.




(3) Group discussions sharing personal experiences and insights on writing, editing and publishing.

Dependent on the weather and fire ban status, we may be able to have a bonfire and roast marshmallows (no promises!).
