Writer's Retreat at Broadkill Resort!

Hello all! I've been a bit quiet as of late. but it's been for good reasons! I've been working my tail off on a novel for NaNoWriMo. It's a paranormal romance that I've been wrestling with for years, unfortunately. But I think I am finally finishing it!!! More on this on my other penname's blog here: http://www.jocrosier.com/2015/11/im-late-im-late.html 

I have also been doing some very crazy real-life stuff. (More on this later!) 

This past weekend, I had the immense pleasure to help break in a brand new writer's retreat and workshop stop down at Broadkill Beach, DE. It is called Broadkill Resort and is run by the owners of Raw Dog Screaming Press!

This is a shot of the nearly deserted beach just a block away from the house! From what John & Jennifer have said, this beach stays like this, even in the summer! It's almost like having your very own private beach!

So, the fiance, Chris, and I went to help break in the house over the weekend. We did some writing, we did some reading, we got to spend time in this amazing house and with our awesome friends. The house is beautiful (as you will see in the pics below) and has four separate bedrooms and a bonus room that can also serve as sleeping quarters. 
They will be holding writers retreats and also writing workshops/retreats here, beginning next month! Chris and I are honored to be the first official workshop hosts in January 15-18! We will be teaching several workshops on plot, character, and other writing crafts. We will also provide you with a few yummy meals, hours of quiet to write, and a place to stay for 3 nights! Spots are limited, so please email me ASAP if you're interested. Rach at RachellNichole Dot com 

This is the lovely living room. Look at those beautiful bookshelves! They are sure to be stocked with books soon enough.

 This is the back porch. A perfect quiet writing spot! It can get a bit chilly back there, but with a space heater, the room is cozy! 

This is the antique stove and oven! It was so much fun to figure out how to work it! Quite the adventure. I'm still not quite sure how we didn't blow ourselves up. But it works well once you're used to it. We made bacon and blueberry pancakes for breakfast and I roasted a chicken for dinner! MMM Mmm, Good. 

We had such a blast over the weekend, and I can't wait to go back next month. More details and a link to reserve your spots will be available in the near future (probably after the holiday rush has passed). 

Until then, you can find more info about the resort here: http://www.broadkillresort.com/

To help sponsor some writers, they have also set up a fund. Any amount you can donate will go toward sponsoring a writer to come to the resort for a few days to write! If you're unsure what to get your creative friends and family this holiday, this is a great, unique gift! https://www.youcaring.com/broadkill-writers-resort-480084  

I will share more concrete details about upcoming workshops and retreats as soon as they are available!
