    I haven't but it's been on my to-do list for a while now. I'm waiting for one to really jump out at me. They're pretty expensive! Are you thinking about going on one?

    I have never been on a writer's retreat, I just write the ideas as they come effortlessly. I never "pressure" my mind to come up with ideas that requires me to intentionally think for 30 minutes. I just wait for the creative juices to flow.

    I am not a writer in a true sense, however, I have a blog and I write my blog posts. I do not want to call myself a writer because I have never done creative writing. However, I have always been fascinated when I see writers going to a writer's retreat and coming up with a great piece of work. I think a writer's retreat gives a writer a sense of tranquility to write better.

    If you put words together as writing, you're a writer. Don't knock yourself.

    I write blogs, so I might also be a writer, however, when I think about a writer, I see a person who writes literary works like novels, stories, etc. A lot of students write term papers and dissertations, which can be almost book-length, however, this does not make them a writer.

    I would to attend one of these. Get to meet other writers and learn about their writing process and whatnot.
