Do you want to write 12,000 words this weekend? With a do-it-yourself writing retreat, you can. This guide and a quiet few hours (yes, hours!) are all you need. This is a BUNDLE that includes both my original DIY Writing Retreat AND the companion guide DIY Writing Retreat: HOME Edition.
DIY Writing Retreat: A guide to getting away is your inexpensive ticket to writing legitimacy. It gives you a schedule and structure for your free time, whether you have an evening or a weekend. It gives you prompts (for when you get stuck) and pep talks (ditto). There are packing lists, shopping lists, and even recipes, so all you need to do is write.
Think of it as a pricey writing retreat, minus the pricey-ness. And minus the awkward introductions. It’s freedom in a handy, printable guide.
The companion guide is designed to help you get away when you can’t…get away. It’s the guide we need now to get some writing done. Its schedules are self-contained, and there are rituals to help you create your own writing space (both physical and mental).
Thanks to DIY Writing Retreat, folks all over the world have gone on mini-vacations with their projects and done great things. They’ve finished drafts. They’ve started new projects. They’ve written…12,000 words (shout out to Timi!).
DIY Writing Retreat will show you how. Here’s what other readers have said:
This book is so helpful and practical. I’ve used it twice now, and each time something different has stood out. Highly recommend for busy writers who need a nudge to get away without guilt!
Good, easy to follow tips. Something you can use at home, a lavish location, or anywhere in between. Simple enough that I’m thinking of simply setting up a retreat at home. I didn’t think I could do it until reading this book
I feel so empowered by the possibilities of a DIY Writing Retreat after going through this! Alicia is very clear and positive, and this is so simple you may think you don’t need the book, but I think it will make all the difference to follow her lead and make that DIY Writing Retreat as productive as it possibly can be.
When I was younger, I used to write all the time. Now, I need to get back into it again for a variety of reasons. Alicia has come to my rescue with her DIY Writing Retreat! I can do it at my pace but with her guidance. She gives you a list of what you need, prompts, suggestions, and even places where to go for your retreat.. The schedule has structure but is not overwhelming and includes non-writing activities as well. I love that she has included ideas for meals as well. I am looking forward to going on my retreat very soon!
