Alida, Kathryn, and Robert discuss the benefits of travel, retreat, and otherwise resting the writer’s brain. What are benefits of leaving your writer’s den? How can you find inspiration and story ideas when you’re on the go? Do you need to travel to find these benefits?




Welcome back Robert! Since Robert just got back from a recent trip, we dive into the idea of travel. Are we travelers? And how far do you have to go to refresh your writing brain? What if you can’t afford to travel? And should your travel involve writing? What are the benefits of breaking out of your routine? And how should you record your travel for later?
