You may have noticed this ad in my e-mail inbox last week:
Need to finish a manuscript in peace and quiet?
We have a writer’s retreat available: large, sunny room with private entrance, private bathroom, small fridge, microwave etc.
Furnished. On 5 acres just outside Ganges, Salt Spring Island.
Rent is $475.-/month and it’s available from October 15 to March 15.
Non-smokers only, no pets.
Hope you can come and write/illustrate in solitude!
I hope you don’t mind, but it was just too tempting to resist! Good luck with the kids and your mom. I’ll be back in March.
