LTH Arezzo Collage

Yup, it’s another post from my writers’ residency in Tuscany at the Lemon Tree House. You can read my first two posts here and here.

It’s not easy to leave such a beautiful spot, but I did venture on a day trip to Arezzo with the crew, a little medieval hamlet nestled on a hilltop. I climbed a Clock Tower for views. I browsed a church with 900-year-old frescoes that had been plastered over and then discovered again. I had a delicious lunch of caprese, risotto, and vino.

A day off the property was divine, but now I’m back to the real reason I came here—to write my ass off. I’ve been productive—14k words and Part One of Book 3 done. I’ll be starting Part Two today.

THE UNITED CONTINUUMS is well underway.

It’s not exactly a hardship when I can write poolside. I got one last swimming day in Sunday before the weather has turned decidedly cooler. Hello, September. Hello, fall. A nice break from sweltering Los Angeles.

Pool Writing Day

I return home on Saturday via Rome. Three weeks was the right choice. I’ve loved my time away—especially the incredible meals, the vino, and the writing time. But I miss my fur baby and my hubby. Going away makes coming home that much sweeter, doesn’t it?
