My Writer’s Retreat/Summer Cottage Got a Facelift!

My brother and I just spent a week in Maryland painting my little summer cottage up there.  Now it looks so cute, I can’t wait to go up for a writing retreat. I wrote the first draft of Celebrity Status up there two summers ago,  in less than a week! It’s amazing how much writing I can get done when it’s just me, my dog and my computer (with crappy internet so I can’t procrastinate on social media).

Here are the before, in progress and after pictures of the place:
