I'm preparing a manuscript for an agent right now, and also working on a nonfiction book which is about a third finished (40,000 words). I've also had quite a bit of Misque business to attend to. I'm excited about the retreat, and glad to do it, but when I go several days without writing, I tend to get depressed.
This made me wonder. Do you NEED to write? I mean, do you ever feel the seed your creativity withers and dries up inside for lack of sunshine if you don't let it out to blossom once in a while?
