Colleagues will attest that it is a great opportunity to jump start a project, clear the cobwebs from the brain, or advance a project on the back burner. It doesn't have to be all writing either; sometimes it's just thinking or sharing your ideas with the facilitator."
At Duxbury, everyone is very respectful of quiet time and individual spaces. There are places to escape to as well if you need alone time. There's a private beach for walking and even some brave individuals who take the plunge in May. Bedtimes seemed mostly staggered according to individuals' own clocks, and although we share rooms, I never felt weird about that, and I'm pretty private. Most people got up before me so when I got up, I would find coffee in the pot. One night meal making is easy and basic with some surprising innovators out there. Dessert is included! And there were always leftovers to take home. You can bring your own alcohol (liquor store nearby), but teetotalers are welcome, too."
