It’s thirty something degrees today and we decided to go for a swim at the local dam, Carcoar Dam for those that know the Bathurst/Orange area of NSW.

What we didn’t count on was people wanting to buy our books – and our writing courses.

The problem was our vehicle.

And me.

Before I launch my online writing courses I read that I needed three of ’em and so I’ve waited.

And procrastinated.

And missed an opportunity  to upscale my business, damn it!!

A lady named Darlene is heading around Australia with her hubby and three kids.

And they all wanna write.

And they saw my vehicle.

Historic Carcoar offers everything this writer could possibly want to inspire productivity – historic buildings, heritage rose gardens and solitude – so much so that I think this is the ideal location to hold a writer’s retreat during the cosy winter months that only the Bathurst/Orange area with its villages, fine food and wines, and romantic weather can offer (think log fires, foggy mornings and crisp, clear days).

Anyone interested in log fires, devonshire teas and uninterrupted time to write?

I’ve found the ideal location at an old nunnery attached to the local catholic church.

Stay tuned for details.

It’s 9.00am and, as I wander around our borrowed farm, already the animals have retreated to the shade; horses under overhanging oaks, donkeys resting under river gums and the goat hiding in his shed. Only the whippets join me on my walk, determined not to miss an adventure, regardless of the heat.

With only a couple of days left of our farm-sit, I’m contemplating the idea of hitting the highway to continue our journey south to join our family for Christmas. But part of me wants to stay here in my paddock, surrounded by nature, and only emerge when this crazy week is done.

Dear Santa,

Please send our pressies to the shack at the bottom of the track in the paddock in the middle of forest out the back of the highway. There’s plenty of grass, waterways and companionship for your reindeer and your way will be lit by a million stars.

Love a romance writer in retreat
