Update from Artist’s Residency VCCA

September 16, 2011

The Writer’s Roundup is on vacation until I’m back from my writer’s residency.

Every writer’s colony is its own little world.

Here at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Little World includes about 20 artists (mostly fiction writers), a few horses, three meals a day in the dining room and studios in a renovated barn.

It includes morning walks, afternoon naps and evening yoga. Plus a constant cicada-infused silence.

And, of course, lots and lots of writing. I’ve just hit the halfway point of my two weeks here, and I’m about to complete my soon-to-launch project, How to Take a Career Break to Travel.

A few photos:
