I got back yesterday from a week at Firefly Farms as part of a residency with Sundress Academy of the Arts (SAFTA). It was a lovely, slow week on the farm and I made some headway my novel revisions. Not as much as I would have liked, but I also cooked 2-3 meals a day, fed farm animals and collected eggs, so all things considered, I feel pretty good about it. I think I would have gotten more done if I was writing rather than revising, but either way, if folks are looking for dedicated time and space to work on a project, I recommend the residency. Happy to answer any questions people might have too!
