Writing and the road to publication can seem very lonely at times. Mount Herman is a peaceful place–with awesome food!–to connect with others at various stages of that journey. There, I have grown closer to existing friends, met new ones, prayed for others, and been prayed for. I finished revisions to my second book sitting in the coffee lounge. I met my new agent there. I cried and voiced my fears about my next project. Go and enjoy–even if you don’t know anyone else going. You’ll know plenty of others by the time you leave.
