Remembering Sooke and My Place of Power
I firmly believe we writers need a place of power, some when or some where we can visit in person or in our mind's eye, especially when our muse needs peace, clarity and inspiration. My place of power is in Sooke. On days like today when the weather's gray and rainy, and my muse wants to do anything else but sit butt in chair for the hard work of writing, I remember Sooke, the sea, C's Fabulous Sooke Writer's Retreat on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, fresh blueberry Welsh cakes, the big red barn, and hikes through these woods.
